Media Release: KNP: Orionides Meteor Shower

05 November 2002

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.
