Members of the public are welcome to an Open Night at the SAAO in Cape Town on 14 January 2017, starting at 20h00. Dr. Wanda Diaz Merced (Office of Astronomy for Development) will present a talk titled Progress in multisensorial astronomy. This will be followed by a tour of the site and (weather permitting) star gazing.
Summary of the talk
Dr. Wanda Diaz Merced will talk about the return of the astrophysics field to the exploration of heavens using multisensoriality. She will also stress that this promises to enrich exploration in astronomy and to open the field for people to use their own coping strategies to explore or get familiarised with the information.

Gates open at 19h30 and parking is available on site.
