My 14 year old daughter, Tiffy, looks up at the Milky Way, with Jupiter and Saturn shining brightly above her head. We also saw many meteors in the darkness of the crater. Ramon Crater is the first International Dark Sky Place to be listed by the IDA in the Middle East. An amazing location for great views of the heavens!
