Friday12th January 2018 - Two Astronomy Video Lectures

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

Brian Cox - Life of a Universe. Brian Cox visits Australia to explore fascinating theories about the beginning and end of our universe.

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

Alex Filippenko: Understanding the Universe, Ep 82 - The Mass Density of the Universe.  This lecture explores methods used by astronomers to determine the mass density and expansion of the Universe. To make this measurement, a race developed between two teams of astronomers searching for Type 1a supernovae in distant galaxies.

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.
