Friday 1st February

This Friday at 8 pm we have our Special General Meeting to vote on adopting new model rules issued by the State Government as our constitution. 

Following the meeting James Murray will give a talk on "Stars for Observers".

When you look up at the night sky how can you tell if a star is big or small, hot or cold, near or far? How old are they, how do they die, and what is so important about 47 Tucanae?

Every Friday is members night at Mount Burnett, starting at 8pm. Members are reminded that annual fees are due and can be paid on the night.
