Friday 10th February 2017 - Two Astronomy Video Lectures

At 8pm this Friday we will be having two different science videos for your enjoyment and education:

Cosmos: A Space Time Oddysey, Ep 2 - Some of the Things That Molecules Do.

A brief supper, followed by two parallel streams of either:

Alex Filippenko: Understanding the Universe, Ep 71 - Cosmology - The Really Big Picture.   This lecture starts the study of the Universe as a whole (or Cosmology).  A key finding made by Edwin Hubble in 1929 was that the spectra of distant galaxies are redshifted more than those of nearby galaxies, suggesting that the Universe is expanding.

Supper, discussions in cabin, observing.   Or:

Visual observing through the telescopes (weather permitting).

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.
