As the 2021 Sydney Science Festival draws to a close, we bid our inaugural Astronomy Ambassador Karlie Noon farewell on a livestreamed final stroll through the cosmos, featuring a tour of her favourite astronomical objects combining both Western and Indigenous understandings of the sky. Join Karlie as she travels light-years away to explore the late winter, August skies through the telescopic eyes of the historic Sydney Observatory.
Karlie Alinta Noon is a Gomeroi astronomer and science communicator who promotes Indigenous astronomical knowledge systems and advocates for women in STEM. She was the first Indigenous female to obtain degrees in physics and mathematics and is currently completing a PhD at the Australian National University looking at the centre of the Milky Way galaxy. Noon was an ACT Young Australian of the Year finalist and a Eureka Prize Emerging Leader finalists in 2019, as well as the first Astronomy Ambassador at the Sydney Observatory.
