The extraordinary beauty of the Universe from Atacama desert -- ATacama At Night (ATAN)

Welcome to my webpage.

I am Daniele Gasparri, astrophysicist, astrophotographer and professional science writer, with more than 30 astronomy books published. To  know more about me, click here.


I moved to the Atacama Desert to do a PhD in astronomy and planetary sciences at the Universidad de Atacama. Here I also take pictures of the Universe and time lapse videos, showing the incredible beauty of the darkest sky of the World.


The Universe is an amazing place, full of colours, exotic bodies, huge energy and very different from anything we are used to see here on Earth. Let our journey begin!
