CANCELLED: Due to the BoM severe weather warning our Friday night meeting is cancelled. Stay safe everyone!
At 8pm this Friday we have two different science videos for our regular members night:
Video: "The Campaign for Dark Skies - Light Pollution"
A brief supper, followed by two parallel streams of either:
Alex Filippenko: Understanding the Universe, Ep 81 - When Geometry is Destiny. According to general relativity, the fate of the Universe is tied to its global geometry. If the Universe has positive curvature, like a sphere, it must eventually collapse in a "Big Crunch". If it is flat or has negative curvature, however, it will expand forever.
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.
