Get ready for a cosmic experience you can’t miss!

This Thursday, 22 February, Egypt is rolling out the red carpet for not one but two stellar spectacles that promise to dazzle and delight the night sky enthusiasts among us! According to Ashraf Tadros, a celestial guru and professor of Astronomy at the National Research Institute of Astronomy and Geophysics (NRIAG), we’re in for a real treat.

The stars will be unleashed…

First up, we have the Beehive Cluster, affectionately known as M44, making its grand entrance in the constellation Cancer. This shimmering swarm of stars isn’t just a feast for the eyes; it’s a cosmic conclave that can be admired with binoculars or even the naked eye until 5:00 AM. Imagine peeking through your window or stepping into your backyard to catch a glimpse of this celestial spectacle!

But wait, there’s more! As if the Beehive Cluster wasn’t enough to get your stargazing hearts racing. There will also be a heavenly rendezvous between Venus, the jewel of the sky, and Mars, our fiery red neighbour. Set your alarms at precisely 5:20 AM. This conjunction is like a cosmic tango between the brightest and the boldest, a dance of the planets that you won’t want to miss.

Stargazing Shenanigans!!

So, grab your binoculars, set your alarms, and prepare for a night (and early morning) of astronomical awe. Egypt’s sky is the stage, and the stars are the performers in this dazzling display of cosmic phenomena. Don’t miss out on this celestial showcase!
