The Space Centre Port Edward

The Space Centre Port Edward is owned and operated by Graham Geary, son of Thomas Geary (former director of the Johannesburg Planetarium).

The Space Centre consists of an astronomical museum, with probably the largest private collection of telescopes, books and optical equipment and astronomical photographs and posters, as well as lasers, an observatory, which was originally on top of the Planetarium and a small planetarium seating 80 people.

An average of 150 presentations are presented to the general public and scholars per annum with over 100 000 visitors in total. I have used the Sky Guide extensively this year and hope to sell a few hundred copies of the new edition. Formal meetings are held monthly, lectures by visiting astronomers, viewing evenings, special presentations and films. Meals and refreshments are available, and bring-your-own informal social evenings are regularly held.

The Space Centre has two 10-inch Meade telescopes, two 5-inch refractors, 8- and 6-inch reflectors and plenty more. During holiday seasons we are open daily, and bookings are made by interested parties at other times.
