Rum Sky – A Stargazing Adventure
Located in one of the most beautiful parts of Jordan, RumSky allows visitors to enjoy the starry nights of Wadi Rum.
The guided tour program allows you to learn more about the Universe we live in. Living in lively cities makes it difficult to witness the magnificence of the skies and heavens. Through the innovation of science, we are able to get a little closer to the hidden wonders of the Universe. Stars, planets, nebulae, all are within your reach with RumSky. An entrepreneurial project was started by a group of Jordanians, using state of the art technology and mobile observatory apps.
The adventure starts with a 20 minute presentation that takes you on a journey that sheds light on the cosmos. Anchored in our solar system we venture out in the Milky Way and then travel to all parts of the Universe.
As the presentation comes to a close we step out into the real world and begin our trek across the sky. Follow the light of the green laser as it takes you around the night sky, then get your first amazing look at the sky through the optics of our telescopes, opening up the wonders of the Universe for you to see with your own eyes. There are five large telescopes (16 inch, 11 inch and 5 inch).
As part of this experience you will walk away with the keys of the ancients about reading the stars and the knowledge of navigation.
