A final shot of New Orleans-style jazz band, Brass'ere. The band was playing at the Mount Stromlo Observatory. Here, I catch them as they dramatically file out of the dome while playing the last tune of their set.
Mount Stromlo marks its 100th anniversary this year – but on a sad note. The 2003 Canberra bushfire destroyed most of the site; and its collection of precious telescopes was lost in the fire.
An empty shell open to the light is all that remains of the dome you see here. It forms a rough amphitheatre - and has proven to be popular for art and music events. I have previously featured the view from one of the other domes in this post.
