Vibrant cities meet dramatic landscapes in Chile, where nature is the star of the show
STARGAZING IN THE ATACAMA DESERT
The Atacama’s remoteness, altitude, minimal light pollution, and arid desert atmosphere make it one of the best places on Earth to see the heavens above. Stargazers are attracted to here like a magnet, with the clearest skies in the Southern Hemisphere. Once the sun begins to dip behind the peaks of the Andes, an ever-changing colour palette spreads across the landscape in one of nature’s most dramatic shows — followed by the brilliant star-dotted sky. In addition, South America’s largest astronomical observatory located here offers an insight into the secrets of the night sky where you can stare at stars through a state-of-the-art telescope, discovering glowering planets invisible to the naked eye.
