On 18 August, I will be speaking on “Astronomy and Light Pollution” for the Modderfontein Conservation Society and you, dear readers, are invited to come hear what I have to say. The talk begins at 7:30 pm, at the Modderfontein Town Hall and entrance costs R20.
To get there from the Johannesburg side: On entering Modderfontein on Johannesburg Road from the Edenvale side, take the Thornhill turn off to the right on Valley Road. At the traffic circle, carry straight on along Valley Road. This has a sharp bend to the left over a low bridge and becomes Antwerp Avenue. Come to a three-way stop street. Ignore road to right to the Golf Club and continue on until the next traffic circle. Carry straight on then turn right at the second road to the right. This is Casino Road which goes up the hill to a traffic circle at the Old Casino (Heartland House). Turn left out of the circle towards the Sports Club, keeping Heartland House on your left. The entrance to the Town Hall is on the left with parking on the right.
