Limpopo Astronomy Outreach at Elim

Limpopo Astronomy Outreach visited Elim and the local high school (Elim Secondary High School) the past weekend.

Students in Grade 11 & 12 built MoonScopes, Southern Star Wheels and had fantastic views of the gibbous Moon.

Proceedings started early in the afternoon (3pm) with information on how the Moon was formed, lunar phases and eclipses, the Solar System specifically covering the planets Jupiter and Saturn that we would see later on.

Unfortunately due to cloud cover there were no views of Saturn, Jupiter or any of the deepsky objects that were on the agenda, but a promise to come back during clear skies was greeted with much enthusiasm by everyone.

Next week: the Letaba Show.

nothing more to see. please move along.
