  • We have Neil Degrasse Tyson's sister as the local guide.
  • Beautiful
  • I bet Zoe is a lot of fun to be around.
  • You guys are hilarious for being confused where it is and not finding it, you are aware that the crater is 160 miles across and there are no signs for directions to the crater because you are in the crater; this isn't a crater you can stand somewhere and see the whole thing at once, go to a much smaller crater if you want to do that. The best you can get here are the mountains north and west of Vredefort which were formed from the impact but are not the edge of the crater. Some craters in the world (including Chicxelub are so big you only see them from space and people live inside them. Try researching a place before going, this is the largest impact crater on the world and it is special, but it is not a selfie opportunity. I am still laughing at how stupid some of you guys are.
  • Few people are making craters of themselves with their comments.
