Welcome to the ASTRONOMY FOR AFRICA website. We conduct Astronomy programs/shows at your venue of choice anywhere in the Gauteng / Northwest Province. All other destinations by specific arrangement welcome!
Our purpose with our shows is to inform school kids in South Africa as well as the general public and tourists on what is happening above our heads in the awe inspiring field of ASTRONOMY in a relaxed and friendly manner.
New pictures of the Ludick Observatory here!
New M104 Sombrero Galaxy IMAGE as it was 30 Million Years ago!! There are also new images of the Eagle Nebulae, Omega Centauri and various others.
New ISS with Lunar and Planetary alignment IMAGES!
New MOON IMAGES on the MOON IMAGES page.
Due to logistical changes and most importantly by great demand, we have decided to go “mobile” with our shows as we have found that shows in remote places, at schools, churches and even in your own back yard has been of great demand!
NEW IMAGES: There are new images of the ETA CARINAE and the great ORION Nebulae on the Images page!!. Also view our PICTURES FOR AFRICA.com website for more pictures.(click on “website”)
NEW LIGHTNING IMAGES PAGE: There is a new LIGHTNING IMAGES page of lightning that was/will be taken in and around the Lanseria area which is one of the most lighting affected regions in the world along with Rwanda in Central Africa and Florida, USA!
We also cater for special events such as company outings as well as for tourists who are enroute to any of the magnificent destinations that South Africa has to offer especially areas closely situated to us such as Sun City, Hartbeespoort Dam, the Wonder caves and the Sterkfontein caves.
Tourist operators are welcome to contact us for special pricing!
Contact us today to make a reservation and enjoy an evening by looking at the heavens above with a different perspective. You will be assisted by Paul Ludick and Marhalda Botha who have a love for astronomy and will share the interesting facts about astronomy and our cosmos with you.
South Africa is ideally situated in the Southern Hemisphere which allows you to view certain objects in the sky which are not visible to any Northern Hemisphere resident.
We are also fortunate to have objects in our part of the sky, which are some of the most beautiful images in Astronomy today.
Making a reservation is essential, so please contact us to arrange your viewing evening!
ASTRONOMY IS LOOKING UP!!
