The Guinness World Record attempt happened on 23 May 2018. Around 120 people joined South East Queensland Astronomical Society‘s Bracken Ridge Star Party alone and the official count of people who set the new world record is 46,345 stargazing at one time across over 250 locations around the country.

The ¬†Australian National University (ANU) has been the previous holder of the record for this event where 7,960 people across 37 locations had set the record in 21 August 2015. However, this year’s world record event is even bigger with over 62,000 people participating in events.
