telescope domes and kangaroos!

its one of those fantastic new moon, pitch black nights where you cant see your hand in front of your face. unfortunately, the sky is also covered in clouds so i cant see any stars :( but i managed to see some kangaroos and take some photos before the sun went down!

Cute sign... astronomers sleeping..! Love the 'roos, but how about a pick of a koala? Or are they busy flying planes..?

Very interesting photos. As someone must have said at some point, you can't spell Marsupial without Mars.
