EXPLORE THE DESERT SKY EXPLAINED AS ANCIENT PEOPLE BELIEVED IT          

AT ANDROMEDA DESERT ASTRO CAMP  

Welcome to the clear skies in the deep south of morocco The first humans were very close to the nature, they were hunters, and invited arrowheads, hand axes, fire to cook their food, but also agricultures along the rivers, and oasis .thanks to the astronomy , stars had helped them lots , as they rise in the east and head to the west , groups of stars called constellations helped them after lots of test to establish very efficient agricultural calendar , and made their life easier .


As it’s very hot in the Sahara, no way to move during the day , but as during the night we lose all references , no hills, no mountains , no orientation , the sky was the clock , the calendar , the compass ,,, for the nomadic tribes . So astronomy was a first priority in their life.


Star gazing is one of the things that immediately spring to mind when you are visiting Morocco. However, it is an ideal destination because although most of us live in areas with high population density and light pollution which obstruct the natural starry sky, We offer unique desert stargazing in Erg Chebbi , Morocco We invite you to discover the beauty of the sky from our camp site in the desert in the deep South of Morocco. We are based in Erfoud, where the sky meets the Earth. We welcome you to share our knowledge and experience in astronomy at our camp, so come to the Deep South of the Moroccan desert to make your dream become a reality! there are areas in Morocco where there are no city lights .Merzouga Erg Chebbi sand dunes is one of the fabulous And unique paradises for stargazing in Morocco. Try Camel trek into the Sahara for an unforgettable night of stargazing at one of the spectacular desert sky . The stars in the Sahara are fantastic, and the sky is dark.
