Young Observers Event – Radio Astronomy Talk
For the November meeting of MBO Young Observers, the Constellation of the Month is Cetus and we have a very special theme – Radio Astronomy. What exactly are radio telescopes? How do they work? How big are they? What advantage do they have over an optical telescope? Can I make my own radio telescope and will it fit in my back yard? What is the Murchison Array? These and other questions will be answered as our own MBO resident radio astronomers, David, Adrian and others present an excellent program, including hands-on activities with special equipment.
This will be a great way to wind up the year before a couple of month’s break.
The program starts at 7.30 and we hope to see all of our regulars there, plus any new young members.
When booking, choose a role from the drop down box when booking tickets. Select the age group that works for each child.
7pm – 7: 30pm if Weather is great, we will have telescopes set up for people that wish to view before the event starts.
7:30 pm – 9:30 pm the rest of the young observers event will be running.
You are all welcome to come so please join us.
“MBO Staff” tickets are for the event coordinators only to use book in.
You will only be allowed onsite if you have a ticket
Please Note: You can book tickets up until 5:00 pm on the day of the event, unless booked out before that. We do have a limited number of people we can have up at the event for safety reasons.
These events are for the younger members of our wonderful Observatory family; anyone from the age of 5 to 15 is welcome to come and enjoy a great night. We also of course welcome accompanying adults, who may also learn something they may not know, plus its a great night to enjoy with your kids.
