Observatory Closed Friday 24 August

Following a most successful series of presentations at MBO throughout last week for Science Week, the heavy rain and increased traffic of cars has unfortunately made a mess of the driveway and grassed parking area around the observatory. Reluctantly, the MBO Committee has decided to close the observatory down for this Friday night’s Members’ Night, in order to give the grounds an opportunity to recover. We hope this rest will be sufficient and that we will be open again for the following week. We apologise for this interruption to the MBO program.
