Between stars and mountains.

From couple of weeks i was in El-Medwra mountain in  Wadi Elrayan which located in Egypt. It is one of the beautiful places you can visit in Egypt, it stretches on an area of 1759 km². In the middle age this area was part of the ocean, so in part you may find skeletons of primitive fish. It has a spectacular clear night sky.

It Was a trip with ASMM (Astronomical Society of Mahmoud’s Mosque) observing a meteor shower at its peak.

 When the night came a whole new view came up and the significant beauty of the sky was unleashed. As you know i’m a amateur astronomer but i have never went to a place the sky is clear, this was the first time.

When the sun set i saw a strange region in the sky. I asked friend with a happy smile on my face “is this the milky way?”, he said “yes! we saw it when we….”  i didn’t hear what he was saying. I was very happy that i has isolated in my great happiness looking a this region (the sky was’t even dark yet). It has one of the happiest moments I can’t forget. Looking through my eyes -not through a computer screen- to my big home, to millions of stars, to the dust clouds which is the stars factory.

After a wonderful day with wonderful people and a wonderful sky we went again down the mountain to go back to Cairo.
