n MNASSA : Monthly Notes of the Astronomical Society of South Africa - ScopeX 2010 - See it, the Big Scopes are here! : scopex 2010




ScopeX was held on Saturday, 17 April at the Military History Museum, Johannesburg. It was three days before the volcano Eyjafjallajökull (pronounced "AY-yah-fyah-lah-YOH-kuul") starting spewing ash, grounding hundreds of flights internationally. Luckily the out-of-town guests, Case Rijsdijk, Auke Slotegraaf and Willie Koorts only had to fly to the Cape. In anticipation of the World Cup, the Camera Obscura sported ribbons and a South African flag - the intended soccer ball unfortunately could not materialise.
