THE KAMBROKIND HOUSE
KAMBROKIND GUEST HOUSE
In Sutherland's main road you will find the "Old Style" Bed and Breakfast Guest House of Rita and Jurg Wagener called Kambrokind.
Six en-suite rooms are available at Kambrokind of which one is a Self-Catering unit called "The Family Room". A sheltered outside braai (BBQ), "Die Tolhuis" with microwave, DSTV, cutlery and crockery is also available to all our guests.
Star gazing sessions are presented almost every night throughout the year. Remember to "dress up for the occasion". Evenings are cool so in order for you to enjoy the program more thoroughly, being warmly dressed is essential.
Our show commences at 20:00 and lasts two hours. You as the star gazer are first treated with an indoor presentation on a three meter size screen with explanations of the constellations and size of the universe. A short DVD about Sutherland is also shown. Astronomy related posters and books including Wayne Mitchell's STAR GAZER'S DEEP SPACE ATLAS will be on display.
Bright Light in the Sky! (part 2)
OTV-3 X-37B Sighting (Satellite)
It is now believed that it was not a fuel dump, but rather a retro (i.e. reverse) burn of both the Spaceplane and its accompanied 2nd stage rocket.
The retro burn for the 2nd stage was to de-orbit it. It is strange that OTV (Orbital Test Vehicle) also retro-fired at the same time and it is assumed it was to lower the orbit slightly.
