In 2003 the love of stars and all things astronomical brought a group of South African friends, mainly from the Boland / Cape Town surrounds, together to form the Observation Group (OOG). On an informal basis we communicate via email and Facebook. We love sharing our passion with the public and are involved in outreach programmes and also host regular star-gazing evenings at the Taal Monument in Paarl. Make sure to “like” our Facebook page to receive information on upcoming events.
The Stargazing Picnics at the Monument are family events where all get to look at the night sky through a variety of telescopes.
