CANCELLED - 7:30pm Saturday 14th November 2015 - Deep Sky Observing

Deep sky observing for Saturday 14th November has been cancelled - better luck for December hopefully!

Are you interested in brilliant Galaxies, gargantuan super Clusters and gorgeous Nebulae? Then please join Braeden Borg and Lachlan Wiltshire for this months night of Deep-Sky Observing (7:30pm-midnight)!

Deep sky night will run late when the moon is new (or as close as we can get, weather permitting), allowing astronomers to perceive the vastly expansive universe in a constructive, cooperative environment. Every astronomer - no matter what their prior skill level may be - is greatly encouraged to come down to the Mount Burnett Observatory for a night of enjoyment and education.

If you are interested, please e-mail or SMS your name and mobile number (for contact should planned nights change) to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (0449 769 666)

Please do not hesitate to bring along your own telescope! We love seeing new people interested in Astronomy and all of its wonders, so make us two happy men and come for the grand experience ...

Please note: MBO will always be closed on days of Severe, Extreme and Code Red fire ratings, please see the CFA website for that information.

For weather information please see our useful links.

7:30pm Saturday 18th July 2015 - Deep Sky Observing

I'm gleeful to report that the forecast for this weekend up at Mount Burnett Observatory states clear skies, no precipitation levels and a mild breeze (excellent viewing conditions)! Hence, this Saturday night I will - finally - be able to host yet another fantastic Deep-Sky night. Nevertheless, the night it only as good as the people who join in on the jollification. So come on down! Also, in lieu of the very exciting success of the New Horizons Space mission, I think it will be a great challenge to find the controversial beast itself.

If you are interested, please e-mail or SMS your name and mobile number (For immediate contact details as planned nights are prone to change) to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (0449 769 666).

I'll try to send a final update regarding Saturday both via e-mail and SMS tomorrow.

Please consider the neighbours and the observers by driving in and out quietly using low beam only, or better still, parking lights.

Are you interested in brilliant Galaxies, gargantuan super Clusters and gorgeous Nebulae? Then please join myself and the infamously clever Lachlan Wiltshire for a monthly night of Deep-Sky Observing! Each night will run late when the sky turns black, allowing every dedicated astronomer to perceive the vastly expansive universe in a constructive, cooperative environment. Every astronomer - no matter what their prior skill level may be - is greatly encouraged to come down to the Mount Burnett Observatory for a night of enjoyment and education. If you are interested, please e-mail or SMS your name and mobile number (For immediate contact details as planned nights are prone to change) to: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Remember, dates may change as the weather (as antagonistic as it can be) can alter affecting the possibility of the desired night. Hence why contact details are necessary for such rapid changes. Lastly, do not hesitate to bring along your own telescope! We love seeing new people interested in Astronomy and all of its wonders, so make us two happy men and come for the grand experience ...
