    Notes:
    --------
    (1) Cleared suddenly but conditions terrible. Transparency very poor and
        humidity very high - could not see stars fainter than about mag+2 with
        the unaided eye. Local TV said pollution level above Cape Town is
        dangerously high - must be caused by all the hot air from the local
        politicians.
    
    
    Cheers
