Friday 1st March

This Friday night the guest speaker at Mt Burnett Observatory is Ken LeMarquand, President of the Astronomical Society of Victoria and he will be speaking on how he runs the New Astronomers Group in the ASV. This is a course for those new to astronomy so that they may increase their knowledge. We might use a similar idea for our members.

 Supper will follow the talk and then there will be viewing through the MBO’s telescopes.

 Members’ Nights are on every Friday night at MBO commencing at 8pm; all are welcome.
