Friday 8th February 2013

This Friday for our weekly Members' Night, Steve Roberts from the MBO will be giving a presentation titled "The Moon".  Following this we will be aiming our telescopes at Comet Lemmon. This new comet has unexpectedly brightened and is now perfectly placed for observation in the Southern Sky. As it begins to brighten and develop its tail, we want to share it with you.  Don't miss it!

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