Mercure Conservatory

Astronomy and the Gold Rush

Darren Bellingham


As the 2018 NACCA will be held in Ballarat, a city with a rich gold mining history, it is appropriate to do a presentation that shows some of the obvious and the more tenuous links between Gold and Astronomy. The presentation will be rich with facts but also be presented in a lighthearted and approachable way.
