Thirty Astronomy enthusiasts, half of which were Cape Centre members, the other half made up of UCT and UWC students, left for Anysberg Nature Reserve on 17 March 2012 for two nights of stargazing. Two coaches were hired from UCT Transport and Cape Nature's reserve was taken over for the duration. This venue was chosen by organiser Kechil Kirkham as being ideal, having worked on the development of astronomy-based facilities at the reserve with Chris de Coning. The trip was subsidised by the SAAO and by the Cape Centre.
