Night of Desert People

By: Babak A. Tafreshi


Region: Africa

Site: Tassili National park - Algeria

Date: June 2009

Night arrives in the remote Saharan desert of Tassili National park; a World Heritage Site in southern Algeria. While the Sahara man (Taureg people) prepares their traditional mint tee, stars of Scorpius rise from the east, the Centaurus shines in the southeast and the Southern Cross barely rise above the cliffs in south. The view is made in adventure TWAN trip to the heart of Sahara. Prehistoric skygazers surely witnessed a similar sky. Tassili region is noted for rock paintings and archaeological sites dating to neolithic times. Babak Tafreshi/
