This Friday at 8pm we have another Alex Filippenko lecture, this one being "Uranus and Neptune, the Small Giants". Though less massive than Jupiter and Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are similar in that they consist mostly of hydrogen and helium. Both have bizarre magnetic fields that are highly tilted relative to the planet's rotation axis and offset from the planet's centre.
Following the talk and supper, there will be viewing through the MBO 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 (doors open 7:30PM). Guests are always welcome.
Please consider the neighbours and drive in quietly using low beam only, or better still, parking lights.
