Another is the annular solar eclipse of September 1st in the Southeast Africa. Still being quite a time ahead, Astrosafari is departing to
Tanzania for a scouting trip. Locations within the central path, road conditions, local sights, pitfalls and, of course, weather patterns are to be studied closer. Hopefully, the latter doesn’t pose a serious threat, as May through early September is a dry season in the East Africa, even more pronounced in the southwestern part of Tanzania.
