Sparkling night Private Tour – Seeking wonder, magic and a chance to gaze upon a shooting star? Look no further than the Arabian desert. Home to a plethora of dark skies, Saudi Arabia makes stargazing easy. And it may soon be home to the largest certified Dark Sky Reserve in the world.
“Over the centuries, explorers, trade caravans and pilgrims have used the night sky to navigate across our region,” says John Pagano, CEO of The Red Sea Development Company, which is seeking Dark Sky certification for the luxury tourism destination it is building among 90 untouched islands along Saudi’s west coast. “Dark Sky accreditation will allow our visitors to enjoy the same stunning nighttime panoramas that guided and inspired those historical travelers.”
Accompanied by an Astronomy specialist tour guide, on this tour you will learn about the formation of the galaxies, the origin of the stars and how to know which planet is which with your bare eyes.
There will be a telescope to observe distant planets to observe astronomical objects such as stars, planets, moons, comets and galaxies.
