The European Southern Observatory (ESO) celebrates 50 years this year. Quoting from their website: "It all began in 1962 [on 5 October] with the signing of the ESO Convention - the culmination of the dream of leading astronomers from five European countries, Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden." However, seven years of history, all involving South Africa, were excluded from this celebration.
