Occultation section report. - Free Online Library

Once again there were no favourable minor planet events taking

place over the areas covered by our observers in 2010. Also the weather

conditions proved an obstacle for the observers in the Gauteng area, as

it does in normal years for the coastal areas.

The highlight of the year was the expedition by a team of American

astronomers to observe the occultation of a star Guest House in Upington by Pluto in July 2010.

Groups of two members travelled to Boyden, the Karoo near Upington, the

Aloe Ridge hotel observatory and the Innes dome to observe the event.

The team at Aloe Ridge managed good results. All the other stations

suffered from cloudy conditions of some sort. Dave Hughes, Chris Curry

and Rodney Hyman put in a huge amount of effort to get the Innes

telescope in working condition for this observation.

Farmer housing foreigners battles with municipality

DURBAN Hundreds of foreigners, chased from their homes in Durban during xenophobic attacks in March, are still living on a farm in Cato Ridge.



The foreigners were offered refuge by a local farmer, Andrew Wartnaby.



Wartnaby says they can stay until alternative accommodation is provided, but the local municipality is not happy about the situationand has warned him that his farm must be re-zoned from agricultural to residential.





He says many of the adults are unable to find work in the area, and he is particularly concerned about their children.





The foreigners have refused to return to their communities, fearing victimisation.



With the festive season around the corner, the foreigners say they have nothing to celebrate.



The local municipality says it is already finalising new rates for Wartnaby because he failed to re-zone of his farm before allowing the foreigners to stay.
