Friday 29th September 2017 - AstroLight Festival Roundup

8pm Friday 29th September This Friday we will have a report on the recent Astrolight Festival by some of our members who were there, plus the usual discussions and viewing through the telescopes (weather permitting!).

Our MBO Outreach Team have had a busy week, culminating in the AstroLight Festival at Scienceworks on Saturday. We had over a dozen helpers and also ran into a number of our members on the night, including Young Observer families. We manned a table all night long and ran telescopes. We fielded a huge amount of enquiries and have once again raised our profile in the wider community, as well as having a lot of fun! Thanks to Sue and Heike for being the main coordinators for us here and to everyone who came and helped. Congratulations also to Neil Creek and Braeden Borg for being invited as speakers at the event.

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.
