Friday 19th October 2018 - Jacquie Milner - Beginners Night: Jargon

8pm Friday 19th October 2018 we have our own Jacquie Milner with the latest in her series of beginners talks, this time about jargon in astronomy.

Astronomy is full of jargon, but in learning this language we learn so much more than just the meaning of a word. Tonight, we take a look at some of the terms we use to describe how we find our way around in the sky, and some particular points of interest, such as the poles – all six of them!

Members' Night is on every Friday night. Guests of members are always welcome. Contributions of food to share for supper are always gratefully received and demolished! :-)


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.
