CTARC Pictures of SAAO Meeting 1/2 - 28 Feb '15

Report - Photos Batch One - Photos Batch Two

Here are some photos of the CTARC excursion to the SA Astronomical Observatory in Observatory, Cape Town on 28 March 2015. The afternoon started at around 18h00 with a picnic held on the patio outside the SAAO lecture theatre. It was a pleasant, sociable late afternoon before the lectures began at 19h00

prevented us from observing stars or planets later on.
