8pm Friday 6th October we will have our monthly round up of events in this months sky from Perry Vlahos.
This Friday night for Members' Night we have Perry Vlahos in to point out what's worth pointing your eyes to during the month of October. This month is a perfect time to get out and have a look - the magnificent constellations of winter such as Scorpius, Sagittarius and Aquila are still around, but now more enjoyable to observe because of there's no freezing nights. And if you're really keen, Cygnus is in just the perfect position! Dispersed through these groups are the magnificent binocular object of 'The Coathanger', a crimson V Aquilae and the Dumbbell, to name a few. But there's also arguably the best coloured double star in the sky and Perry's favourite Messier object 'The Swan'. But wait, there's more; this month we're blessed by a visit from the children of Comet Halley - a meteor shower not to look forward to.
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.
