Tassili Milky Way
Bright planet Jupiter, starry sky and the band of Milky Way as seen in dark night of African Sahara. Deep in Tassili National Park, in the heart of the Sahara desert in southern Algeria, giant eroded sandstone cliffs are barely illuminated by the photographer flashlight. Prehistoric skygazers surely witnessed a similar sky. In addition to dramatic sandstone formations, the Tassili region is noted for rock paintings and archaeological sites dating to neolithic times.
