Can we talk about Sarabi for a moment? Because it seems as though many people underestimate/forget about her. Which is a pity.
Because this is one BAMF lion.
Her husband is dead. Her son is supposedly dead. Her husband’s brother brought hyenas into the Pride Lands and they ultimately destroyed the land.
And yet she does not look down. She does not dip her head. She stands her ground as she walks down a long line of ravaging hyenas who bite and leer at her. She keeps her head high. Even as she faces Scar, she ultimately keeps her head high and even tells Scar off.
Geminid Meteor Shower The annual Geminid meteor shower peaks next week. Sadly, the Moon will be near-full brightening the sky for most of the night causing rates to be lower. However, the Geminids will still put on a good show pretty much anywhere that isn’t overcast, so don’t worry. Southern Hemisphere viewers will see lower rates, with the peak being ~40-60 meteors/hour in some locations, so you won’t be missing out as was the case for the Persieds earlier this year. Use the Fluxtimator to estimate the rate in your location.
Meteors will be visible when the radiant point is above the horizon from your location. The radiant point is in the constellation Gemini (Jupiter will be too, so get your binocs/telescopes), right next to the Orion constellation. You can spot meteors anywhere in the sky and it is not necessary to look towards the radiant point as some may believe. So go out, find somewhere dark, look up and enjoy the show.
