SAAO Cape Town Open Night

June 22 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The SAAO Open Nights in Cape Town take place on the second and fourth Saturday of every month at 20:00.

Then, visitors will be given an introduction to the historic McClean telescope, the observatory museum, and the library. If the weather is clear, there will be a chance for stargazing using telescopes set up for the night.
