Astronomy at Kilcowera

Clearest skies in the outback

Kilcowera is one of the most remote cattle stations in Australia. The nearest town is Thargomindah, over 75 km away. This is one of the most remote places to observe the night sky, with almost zero light pollution. We are a true night sky sanctuary.   These amazing photos were taken with an iPhone. On any night, before the moon rises, or after it sets, the universe lights up in the Kilcowera way. Simple binoculars enhance your binocular view. Or you can raise the bar with your best telescope.  The air is very dry, and in light winds, from April to October, there is very little particulate matter in the atmosphere.
