Go on a Karoo Stargazing Tour, a celestial journey through South Africa’s historical heartland.
Catch a glimpse of the Lyrids meteor shower, a celestial spectacle marked by 10 to 15 shooting stars streaking across the sky during its annual display. Set for its peak on April 22, this year’s show coincides with the full moon on the 23rd, potentially dimming the visibility of the meteors against the moon’s brightness.
These meteor showers are a result of Earth’s passage through remnants left behind by Comet Thatcher, discovered by A.E. Thatcher in 1861. Comet Thatcher, a long-period comet taking over 200 years to orbit the sun, completes its cycle approximately every 415 years. Dating back to 687 B.C.E., historical records from China mark the Lyrids as one of the oldest known showers, according to NASA.
Look toward the constellation Lyra, the harp, to witness the radiant point from which these mesmerizing meteors appear to originate.
