A Moon quiz was held during an astronomy outreach event held at Makhado Crossing. The event formed part of the global International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN 2011) on the 8th October 2011 and was hosted by the Soutpansberg Astronomy Club with help from the owners and staff of Trappers, Louis Trichardt.

The two first correct entries drawn by Eben Oliver (back) from Trappers Louis Trichardt were Annette Rennings (front left) and Dilan Pretorius (front middle). They received their Galileoscopes from Kos Coronaios (front right), Chairman of the Soutpansberg Astronomy Club.

A warm thank you to the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO) for donating the Galileoscopes and to Eben Oliver from Trappers who assisted with various telescopes during the International Observe the Moon Night.
