Friday 10th March 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 4 - Hiding in the light.

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

Alex Filippenko: Understanding the Universe, Ep 72 - Expansion of the Universe and the Big Bang.   The Universe can be thought of as expanding into a mathematical dimension to which we have no physical access.  Even an infinite Universe can expand, becoming less dense.  The expansion suggests that there was a hot, dense beginning long ago - a Big Bang.

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.
