It was a great pleasure for the Andamooka Observatory and Woomera Baker Observatory to host the Japanese Space Agency, JAXA, Hayabusa2 Capsule Recovery Team over 2 nights at the Woomera Baker Observatory. A fantastic experience to share. We viewed Saturn, Jupiter, Galaxies, Nebulae and Star Clusters.
The JAXA Team also did a number of day trips to Andamooka and gave us a heads up where to best view the capsule reentry. Which was the Kanku-Breakaways Conservation Park near Coober Pedy so we drove up via William Creek and got a super clear view of the magnificent fireball and historic event.
Amazing two weeks
