After another frustrating night of hopelessly bad seeing, we packed up & drove back to Cape Town the next morning. Coming in on the N2 we got a last close-up look at the Athlone cooling towers scheduled to be imploded the next day. Thanks Tim for snapping this pic while I was driving!
Much of Cape Town turned out to watch, making traffic in the areas with the best views impossible, but a bunch of us watched from the roof of the SAAO. A brief squall distracted everyone & prompted the demolition team to flip the switch about 4 minutes early - we were lucky to catch any of the action at all!
WOW :) Google "Athlone cooling towers" for some great YouTube videos of the event!
