8pm this Friday 3rd Feb we have our own Perry Vlahos giving us his round up of what to see in the February sky:
This coming Friday for Members' Night we have Perry Vlahos giving us his take on what's to be seen in the skies of February. Perry's talks never get complicated and are big on audience interaction. He'll cover naked eye sights, binoculars and telescopic views of the best objects for each at this time of year. There's three crosses in the south, along with some impressive naked eye constellations and clusters during February, as well as two naked eye nebulae to be seen (three if you've got really good eyes!). There's also a couple of minor meteor showers in the balmy skies of late summer plus some stunning double, triple and quadruple stars for small telescopes. There's an informal free supper following the talk and observing through the telescopes of MBO. All are Welcome. Kick off time is 8pm. See you there.
If you have a telescope and would like to know how to use it, or alternatively, would like to show it off to us, please bring it along!
Members' Night is on every Friday night commencing at 8PM (doors open 7:30PM). Guests are always welcome.
Please consider the neighbours and drive in and out quietly using low beam only, or better still, parking lights.
Please note: MBO will always be closed on days of Severe, Extreme and Code Red fire ratings, please see the CFA website for up-to-date information.
