Friday 13th April 2018 - Two Astronomy Video Lectures

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


The Commission for Dark Skies - Light Pollution.  The Commission for Dark Skies is the United Kingdom's largest anti-light-pollution
campaign group forming part of the international dark-sky movement.


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


Alex Filippenko: Understanding the Universe, Ep 83 - Einstein's Biggest Blunder?  The unexpected finding that the Universe is expanding at an ever-faster rate lends support for the existence of a non-zero cosmological constant, a formerly discredited idea of Einstein's which he once called "his biggest blunder".

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.
