Morocco's latitude is also crucial. At +30 degrees, it's close enough to the equator to see southern hemisphere constellations that you won't see in central Europe. If you time your trip correctly, you can see passing meteor showers, Saturn's rings, and distant galaxies like Andromeda, 2.5 million light years away.
