Saturday 24th June 2017 - MBO at Belgrave Lantern Parade

Hello everyone,

Another year has flown by and the Belgrave Lantern Parade fast approaches. We had a great time there last year running telescopes and joining in the parade with our Solar System Lanterns.

This year we are on again and would like to invite you to join us. We need people to carry our lanterns (and you are welcome to bring your own) and we also need some keen people to run the telescopes so that we can show the members of the public the wonders of the night sky and promote our Observatory.

The Parade is on Saturday the 24th of June. It normally starts around 5pm although if you are helping you will need to get there a bit earlier. It does not end too late - usually around 9pm, but there are opportunities to stay later. The cafes around Belgrave will be open, so you may want to come early and stop somewhere for a hot chocolate first. For more info contact Heike at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Parking in particular gets a bit crazy so do ask us for advice. Those of you who were there last year will know how much fun this event is.

This event is great for all ages and we need all ages to help out.

Cheers,
Heike Reich
