Standing in the middle of the desert, the Abu Dhabi space observatory is giving astronomy fans in the UAE the chance to gaze into space like never before.
“If after 10 years, one student ends up going to university to study astronomy and astrophysics and goes on to pursue a career in that field, and their inspiration was from the observatory, then I have reached my goal.”
“Once I moved here, I immediately bought a telescope and started looking for astronomy groups. I was having a hard time finding people with similar interests, so I decided to start my own group; Abu Dhabi Astronomy.”
Here are today’s solar images taken from Al Sadeem Observatory, September 4, 2017. The sky was clear but experienced intermittent light to moderate winds, making the seeing and transparency average to poor at the time these images were taken.

Whether you are a keen night watcher or are just looking to explore astronomy as a hobby, the group will gladly give you the basics and get you started on this journey.
