Limpopo Astronomy Outreach (2009 Oct 29)
by Kos Coronaios
"The Mvelelo Spring Show in Louis Trichardt lived up to its name with spring rains dominating two days out of the three day event.
"Due to factors beyond the control of the organisers the yearly show had to be postponed on a couple of occasions and was eventually held on the last weekend of October.
"Limpopo Astronomy Outreach visited over two days with the display having to move indoors due to the non-stop rain on the second day.
"Overall the response from the public was enthusiastic and the first day, which is traditionally the quietest, being productive with over 100 people visiting the display , looking at sunspot # 1029 and collecting the various astronomy material that was available.
"During the early part of the first evening lovely views of the Moon were projected onto the screen. Unfortunately Jupiter was moving in and out of the clouds that were ominously bringing in the much needed rain to the region and we did not get the opportunity to view the planet."
nothing more to see. please move along.
