Friday 13th October 2017 - Two Astronomy Video Lectures

At 8pm this Friday we have two different science videos for our regular members night:


Cosmos: A Space Time Oddysey, Ep 11 - The Immortals. This episode covers how life may have developed on Earth and the possibility of life on other planets.


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


Alex Filippenko: Understanding the Universe, Ep 79 - The Paradox of the Dark Night Sky.   Why is the sky dark at night? In an infinitely old and large Universe the sky should be ablaze with light at all times. There are several possible answers to this paradox, each of which has profound cosmological implications. The relative youth of the Universe is now known to be the main explanation.

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.
