At 8pm this Friday we have two different science videos for our regular members night:
A collection of short astronomy related videos from the Internet.
A brief supper, followed by two parallel streams of either:
Alex Filippenko: Understanding the Universe, Ep 84 - The Afterglow of the Big Bang. An accidental discovery in 1965 overturned the "steady-state-theory" of the Universe, an alternative to the Big Bang theory. The detection of a uniform microwave "glow" in all directions was exactly what was expected if the Universe was hot and dense long ago..
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.
