On Wednesday 26 May 2021, Qantas’s exclusive one-off Supermoon Scenic Flight will depart Sydney for a two-and-a-half-hour sojourn through the southern sky.
Travellers can join in for cosmic cocktails and supermoon cakes onboard a B787 Dreamliner night flight to view the rare ‘supermoon’ phenomenon as well as a total lunar eclipse.
After taking in the Sydney Harbour nightlights on departure, the aircraft will climb above any cloud cover and head east out over the Pacific Ocean.
Onboard Qantas B787 Dreamliner aircraft, featuring the biggest windows on any passenger aircraft, enjoy mother nature’s night lights at 40,000 feet, followed by a viewing of the rising of the supermoon which also happens to be a total lunar eclipse, a highly unusual double act.
CSIRO astronomer Dr Vanessa Moss will work with Qantas pilots to design the optimal flight path and also join the flight to provide insights into supermoons and all things space and astronomy.
