All 3 ASSA Centres

On the weekend of the 16th of June, ASSA Bloemfontein, ASSA Pretoria and ASSA Johannesburg got together at Gansvlei Farm Ranch, just outside of Bloemfontein, for a weekend of excellent star gazing and astronomy. Braving the cold front, we were treated to an excellent planetarium show at the Naval Hill Planetarium, thanks to Mariette Erwee, a wonderful tour of the Boyden Observatory thanks to Dawie van Jaarsveldt, and some very good viewing conditions at the farm itself (bortle 2 at the very least). A big big thank you to Thinus van der Merwe and Shaun Staats for your warm hospitality and sheparding us around. We will definitely be back next year!
