Friday 15th February

This Friday for our weekly Members' Night, Loren Bruns from Melbourne University will give "A brief survey of modern astrophysics".  Following this we will once more be aiming our telescopes at the ever-brightening Comet Lemmon. This new comet has unexpectedly brightened and is now perfectly placed for observation in the Southern Sky.  Don't miss it!

If you have not yet renewed your membership, this will be the ideal time to do so.

The Friday schedule is full to bursting with interesting speakers:

Mar 8 - Perry Vlahos - MBO - TBA
