Experience living, breathing science and art together after dark for a rare night of photography in Centennial Park for our special Field of Orbs event on Saturday 15 August 2015.

Award winning photographer Peter Solness will bring together 101 registered volunteers to spin orbs of light in Belvedere Amphitheatre to celebrate National Science Week and the International Year of Light.

This a fantastic and rare opportunity for families to witness and budding to experienced photographers to capture what the naked eye can’t see!

Everyone is welcome to come along and try out their camera skills. Peter Solness himself and camera experts, Tamron, will be on hand for advice and support on the night.
