Introduction

Experience the Atacama Desert’s amazing night skies.

The Atacama Desert is one of the best places in the world for stargazing.  This unforgettable experience introduces visitors to the wonders of the universe and offers the possibility of astronomical viewing through high-powered telescopes.

The first part of the tour provides an explanation of the skies seen with the naked eye. It offers a basic understanding of what can be viewed, what we can learn from what we see, how to read a map of the skies and how to recognize important stars.

When the moon is visible, a second possibility is offered involving direct observation through telescopes. This is a unique experience that offers a completely different perspective to images found in books or on the Internet.
