This Friday’s guest speaker will be Dr Rosemary Mardling ( http://users.monash.edu.au/~ro/ ) of Monash University with a talk entitled

Extrasolar Planets: The state of the art –

It will be an overview of the exciting things being discovered by exoplanet scientists, how we do this, and what this tells us about our place in the Universe and our chances of discovering life outside the Solar System (if it exists!).

Rosemary is a great speaker and very passionate about astronomy. A night not to be missed.

After the talk there will be supper, to be followed by viewing the sky with the observatory’s telescopes.

As always, visitors are most welcome.
