CAASTRO Poster About National Science Week 2014 with MBO

CAASTRO, the ARC Centre of Excellence for All-sky Astrophysics, has produced the below poster documenting their involvement with the Mount Burnett Observatory for the National Science Week 2014 "Stars in the Yarra Ranges" events.  We had a wonderful time working with them and look forward to more engagement in the future!

Mount Burnett Observatory on ABC 7:30 Victoria and in The Age

The Mount Burnett Observatory was featured in a six minute segment on the ABC 7:30 Victoria programme on Friday 15th August called "Amateur astronomers resurrect disused observatory in the Dandenongs". Then the next morning we were featured in The Age in an article about our National Science Week activities called "Scienceweek challenge: In search of a name with universal appeal"!

Lovely to see the great progress our wonderful volunteers have made over the past few years get some recognition!


Merry Christmas from MBO

Mt Burnett Observatory would like to wish all its members and friends a very merry and safe Christmas time!
