8pm Friday 23rd December 2016 is our Christmas/Newtonmas/Solstice/etc party!
This Friday night we invite all members to come along for the traditional MBO X-mas Party; please dress for a festive mood and bring a plate to share whilst we celebrate an excellent year of astronomy at the Mt Burnett Observatory. For entree we'll have a good helping of Perry Vlahos presenting an appropriate talk for the last event before X-mas - an astronomical explanation for the 'Star of Bethlehem' that guided the Magi to Nativity. For mains there'll be a lavish and delicious supper, with joyous mingling of members. Finally, desert will be a delightful serving of observing through the MBO telescopes.
