UCU students visit WSRT and LOFAR

Submitter: Ger de Bruyn
Description: It is now a yearly tradition for 8-10 students from the University College Utrecht to visit the radio telescopes in Westerbork and Exloo. They are guided by Dr. Filipe Freire who is teaching them a course on astronomy and cosmology.

This year, their visit came just in time (Tuesday 9 April 1600), only hours before the rain started falling. On the one hand, the rain was welcome after a month of drought. On the other hand, it made the SuperTerp soggy again.

Besides the telescope they also got to see some of the birdlife and even a deer passing by.
