Many locations in Jordan meet international specifications for astronomical observation, including tourist sites such as the Amman Citadel, Petra, Wadi Rum, Jerash, Irbid, and Qasr Al-Kharraneh, Sakaji said.

The partial eclipse last Tuesday has revealed the interest of the Jordanian society in astronomical phenomena, he said, adding that several schools and universities dealt with the event by setting up observation stations.

Sakaji recommended further enriching Jordan’s educational curricula pertaining to astronomical content, particularly the natural sciences, geography, and geosciences curricula.
