Iziko Planetarium and Digital Dome, 23 July 2018
On July 23 2018, we invited members of the media and of the astronomy community to an event at the Iziko Planetarium and Digital Dome to celebrate the IDIA Research Cloud. The event consisted of an introduction, a show and a panel discussion followed by refreshments. The show itself featured previously unseen and unpublished astronomical images from the MIGHTEE experiment on MeerKAT and from the MeerLICHT telescope, overlaid to illustrate the complementarity of astronomy at different wavelengths.
