Nightsky Glory and Sasanid Era

Sasanian architecture hit a peak in its development during the Sassanid era. In many ways the Sasanian Empire period (224-651 CE) witnessed the highest achievement of Persian civilization, and Organize the last great pre-Islamic Persian Empire before the Muslim conquest. As a matter of fact, part of Sasanian architecture was adopted by Muslims and became part of Islamic architecture.

Iran is a country with different sorts of climates. From deserts to dense forests and from the snowy mountains like Damavand to the tall sand dunes in the Lut desert. Astronomical destinations

Night sky gazers and amateur astronomers are keen about the dark night skies and starry nights in the country. Fortunately, they are able to find different locations with amazing night skies.

Astronomy Day is an annual event held in different countries around the world; intended to provide a means of interaction between the general public and various astronomy enthusiasts, groups and professionals.

This event has been held since 1973 by Doug Berger; the President of the Astronomical Association in Northern California of the United States. His goal was to set up various telescopes in the crowded parts of the city to show the beauty of the night sky to the local people. Since then the event has expanded and therefore it is now sponsored by a number of astronomical organizations.
