Sutherland, South Africa
The WorldDEM of Sutherland in the Northern Cape Province in South Africa shows a hilly to mountainous with elevation ranging from 366m to 1,842m.
The topography is characterised by the Roggeveld Mountain range which is part of the Large Karoo. Only a few small villages and towns are scattered around in the remote territory.
Sutherland's arid climate and remote location make its night skies among the world's clearest and darkest, the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT), the largest single optical telescope in the southern hemisphere, is installed here.
