In 2029, light and air pollution has reduced dramatically. As we collectively grieve and country heals, BLAKFULLAS University rebuilds First Peoples’ astronomy and cultural knowledge.
Wurdi Youang was built by the Wathaurong people (in Western Victoria). It is an arrangement of about 100 stones, in an egg-shaped formation running West-East. It’s thought to be 11,000 years old and aligned to the position of the setting sun at the equinox and the solstices – an example of First Peoples Astronomy.
