This Comment was written on behalf of GalileoMobile, whose members are S. Benítez Herrera, F. Carrelli, A. Fernández Barral, I. Jiménez Montalvo, H. Mansour, S. Massalkhi, A. Negrín Reboso, E. Penteado, J. Rivero Gonzalez, D. Rodrigues, A. Rodriguez Antón, N. Rodriguez Eugenio, F. del Sordo, D. Torres Machado, F. Fragkoudi, A. Paula Germano, N. Gomes, P. Kobel, E. Ntormousi, M. Seidel, P. Figueiró Spinelli and M. Vasquez. Above all, Amanar is a story of solidarity. It would not have been possible without the support of the Canarian Association of Friendship with the Saharaui People and the funds of the International Astronomical Union (IAU) through the Office of Astronomy for Development (OAD) and its centennary celebrations (IAU100), and the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias. In addition, we are grateful to our international collaborators: the Cherenkov Telescope Array Observatory, the Gran Telescopio de Canarias, the Virgo collaboration, the Spanish Translation Network of the IAU, the Office Astronomy Outreach, the astronomical association AMNIR and the Superior Council of Scientific Research as well as to all the Canarian local collaborators: Titsa, Cielos de la Palma, CEIP en Arucas, Asociación Canarias de Solidaridad con el Pueblo Saharaui, Fundación Canaria Observatorio de Temisas y Agrupación Astronómica de Gran Canaria.
