Stargazing at Uluru

Stargazing at Uluru is something that just has to be experienced. It should be on your bucket list. The sky above Uluru (Ayers Rock) in Australia is one of the most impressive skies in the world to stargaze. The reason for this is, that in the Australian outback there is no artificial light that could interfere with the dark night sky. In addition the southern hemisphere offers some spectacular sky objects, such as the Magellanic clouds and the famous Southern Cross constellation.

The milky way has so much power that is even is visible when the moon is shining.

The moonset looks like a sunset because there are small clouds hiding it. When the moon disappears, the milky way arouses it’s whole spectrum of colors and shows all it’s beauty. The center of our galaxy slowly lays down above the famous rock, until the milky way finally sets down and lets the Magellanic Clouds rule the sky.

Before the sun rises again, there are some clouds passing. This is a nice opportunity to notice that there is really no light pollution at all in the Australian outback: The clouds are black, because normally when there are even only some artificial light sources, the clouds are enlightened from the bottom so strongly, that they turn red or orange.
