This book was produced depicting astronomers who have worked at the Perth Observatory; their stories captured in Telescopes, Timekeepers and Tea Bag Jigglers: An Oral History of Perth Observatory. They agreed to be part of this fun adventure. The fairy doors found near the domes for children to see, were made by the POVG fairy volunteers. The theme follows on from the Find a Fairy in Kalamunda; fairies were first spotted at the Clip Joint a few years ago. I hope that parents and children enjoy this magical experience at the Observatory and return sometime to see the glorious night sky and amateur astronomers in action!


All material in this book has been created by volunteers and all proceeds go to Perth Observatory Volunteer Group.
