Southern Star Party 2022

  • 9 January 2023

The 15th Southern Star Party was organized from 26 to 28 August 2022 at Daan Viljoen. With about 90 participants (including about 30 children), this was again a huge success. Further, this was the first occasion that showcased the UNAM/Africa Millimetre Telescope (AMT) planetarium to the public.
In three shows of about one hour each, the astrophysics students from UNAM gave the excited audience a tour through the Universe even before it got dark. At the same time the Sun could be observed through specialized telescopes, showing a huge protuberance. At night the participants could enjoy guided tours of the stars, making use of several different telescopes of sizes up to 20 inches.
