Observing at SAAO, 2014 - 2014

I spent two weeks observing at the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO) site in Sutherland, about four hours northeast of Cape Town. My first trip, in August 2013, was following Amanda Gulbis to observe a Pluto occultation. But we were hit with snow, and didn't open the dome at all in the four nights I was there. Later, I spent a week on my own program in May 2014, looking at Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) -- that is, close comets and asteroids -- assisted by Co-I Vishnu Reddy in Tucson.
