Qatar launches astro-tourism programmes May 07, 2021 0 1493 12345 The Pink Supermoon illuminated the skies in Qatar as everywhere else in the world on the eves of April 26 and 27. It was an astronomical event that occurs when the moon is at its perigee, or the point in its elliptical orbit at which it is closest to the Earth, where the moon was 357,000 km away from earth. Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC), with the astro photographer Vinay Swaroop Balla, captured amazing photos of the pink moon from the top of the Torch Tower and many other iconic towers in Doha to mark the beauty of the scene. Coinciding with this phenomenon, QNTC launched astro-tourism experiences in collaboration with its partners in the private sector, to shed light on the hidden gems of natural and heritage sites in the country.
