Video: Nox Atacama – A Visit to the Driest Place on Earth

The Atacama Desert is one of the driest places on the planet, with rainfall exceedingly rare there. It is also remote, largely unsettled, and features some of the clearest night skies found anywhere.

This video takes us to the Atacama where you’ll get a chance to experience the landscapes and starscapes for yourself. It won’t take long to understand exactly why the world’s highest observatories call this desert home.
