14th October 2013: On the 12th October 2013 Auke, Edward & Lynnette supported by Alan and Rose set up shop at the Zevenwacht Mall in Kuils River as previously arranged. Go here to read more about the event.
World Space Week runs from the 4th to the 10th of October and the International Observe the Moon Night is on the 12th of October and ELF Astronomy and Star People wanted to participate in both. However, the Spring Southern Star Party which is being held at Night Sky Caravan Park near Bonnievale from the 4th to the 6th of October so we had a clash of interests.
Auke came up with the brilliant idea to compact the whole of the World Space Week into one day and combine it with the International Observe the Moon Night. Fortunately for us SAASTA also thought this was a good idea.
So we are all set for the 12th of October at Zevenwacht Mall in Kuils River on the 12th of October. Both the International Observe the Moon Night and World Space Week events have been registered and we are going ahead at top speed with the preparations.
