    This study presents a review of the literature on the interconnection between the quality of the night sky and the growing interest in astrotourism. As a basis for the data collection, studies of secondary documentary were used. It was observed that there is growing interest in the subject among academics considering the possibilities of astrotourism activity, due to the distinctive elements of the offer in the field of tourism, as well providing an element of fun and enjoyment, in the tourists’ perception. The study is relevant in view of the small number of studies in Brazil on the subject and the possibility of incorporating this type of service in the national tourist sector, as well as the possibility of including astrotourism as a distinctive element of the offer in rural areas, as occurs in other countries.
