Friday 14th April 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 5 - Deeper, Deeper, Deeper Still.


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


Alex Filippenko: Understanding the Universe, Ep 73 - Searching for Distant Galaxies.   The finite speed of light allows observers to look back in time and see the unfolding history of the Universe.  This lecture shows how astronomers search for distant galaxies to compare with better understood, nearer galaxies.

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 sharp (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.
