Eclipse Viewing in Cape Town
On the morning, from 7 a.m., the Iziko Planetarium Cape Town will be setting up in the Museum Amphitheatre (in front of the South African Museum in the Company’s Gardens) to view the eclipse.
Telescope(s) will be set up, a number of free viewers and handouts explaining the phenomena will be available for the public.
As demand warrants, short planetarium shows will be run to illustrate what exactly is taking place and the difference between full, partial and annular eclipses.
More information, including the map below, can be found on the Johannesburg Planetarium’s site.
