Media Release: KNP: Orionides Meteor Shower

Date: 5th November 2002

Between the 14th & 20th of November 2002 we are expecting a meteor shower in the eastern sky. These meteors are known as the "Orionides" and will appear in the area of the constellation of Orion.

The shower is due to occur between 03:00 & 04:00 on each morning with a peak on 18 November 2002. 

This I am certain would be of interest to some people. There is a possibility that the camps could hold a "Meteor 
Shower Sunrise Drive" and offer guests an early morning drive to see the meteor shower. Alternatively, let the guests know of this phenomenon. 

If the skies are clear, this will be a spectacular event.
