MBO Young Observers Saturday 11th June 2015

Young Observers meet this Saturday from 7 - 8:30pm. The theme will be Pluto. So bring along a Pluto fact or dress up as your favourite dwarf planet! This month we will be lead by Jacqui Milner. Jacqui observes “occultations” which occur when a small body like an asteroid passes in front of a star. Jaqui took part in a campaign to watch a Pluto occultation. The data from the occultation will help the New Horizons space mission steer safely between the Moon’s of Pluto. How exciting for an earth bound astronomer to be able to help steer a mission at the edge of the solar system… all from her own back yard!

So join us this Saturday at 7pm. Bring a Pluto plate to share for supper. Members are free. Visiting children are $5 with a gold coin donation for accompanying adults.

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.
