The Middle East’s Only Dark Sky Park
reconnect with nature
The skies darken and the desert sands around you fade away as the last rays of the setting sun slip away over the horizon. In the deepening twilight above you first one, then another, then thousands of stars begin to glimmer against the glowing backdrop of the Milky Way. A cool breeze carries the rich aroma of burning cedar from the campfire, mixed with the sweet smell of fresh tea bubbling nearby. Long forgotten are the phone calls and emails, the trappings of the modern world. You are now reconnecting to long-forgotten instincts encoded in thousands of generations of DNA as you experience true nightfall in all of its majesty.

see the heavens
With a good telescope and a knowledgeable guide, the vast expanses of space become a living laboratory of nebulae, star clusters, galaxies and more
How many stars can you see in the night skies above your home? If you’re like the majority of people in the world it may only be one or two dozen. If you live in a major city you may even be able to count them on your fingers – perhaps even on one hand! In the Ramon Crater, on the other hand, a good night will enable you to see between two to five thousand stars.
And embedded within this rich tapestry of background stars lie a rich selection of objects that reveal to us the history of our cosmos. Bright young star clusters containing the youngest stars in our galaxy. Brilliant planets that could harbor clues about the origins of life in our solar system. Ancient galaxies that can teach us about the early years of our universe and how this whole universe came to be.
