At 8pm this Friday we have two different science videos for our regular members night:
Cosmos: A Space Time Oddysey, Ep 7 - The Lost Worlds of Planet Earth. This episode explores the palaeogeography of Earth over millions of years, and its impact on the development of life on the planet..
A brief supper, followed by two parallel streams of either:
Alex Filippenko: Understanding the Universe, Ep 77 - Supermassive Black Holes. Astronomers now have strong evidence that quasars and other active galactic nuclei are powered by supermassive black holes, voraciously swallowing surrounding material. Less active galaxies also appear to harbour these monsters.
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.
