Friday 14th November

Will Comet ISON be the 'Comet of the Century'? What are the best planets to view this month? Which constellations are the most prominent as we head toward summer? How many deep sky objects are worth looking at in the next few weeks? What's happening in the sky during November? If you don't know the answer to these questions then you should come along to Members' Night this week; our President Perry Vlahos will give you a guided tour through late spring skies with naked eye, binoculars and telescopes.

The presentation will be followed by supper and viewing through the MBO telescopes.

Members' Night is on every Friday commencing at 8PM. Visitors are always welcome.

Friday 8th November

This week we are very fortunate to have as our guest speaker the Director of the Comet Section of the British Astronomical Association, Richard Miles.  His topic for the evening will naturally be comets and how they and asteroids may have some similarities, and also give us updated information on current comets such as the much anticipated Comet ISON and how it may perform in light of the latest observations.  It promises to be a fascinating presentation.  Mark it on your calendar and make sure you don't miss it.
As always, the talk will be followed by supper and viewing through the MBO telescopes.
Members' Night is on every Friday night commencing at 8PM.  Guests are always welcome.
