WE BRING YOU CLOSER TO THE SKY -- ASTRONOMICAL OBSERVATIONS

Both during the day and night, and suitable for all, CENTRO ASTRONOMICO DE TIEDRA (Astronomic Centre of Tiedra) offers the possibility of enjoying entertaining sessions of astronomical observations using 2 telescopes. One of them allows for the observation of the Sun and planets, while the other brings dimmer and remote objects such as nebulae or galaxies closer to the observer.

In the planetarium we offer live sessions taught by experts in scientific dissemination, so you can fully enjoy your observations and learn more about the universe.

OBSERVATION OPTIONS

1. DAYTIME OBSERVATION

Using the telescopes of Observatory 1, with adequate filters to observe the Sun safely. The standard structure of the activity consists on:

•Guided session in the planetarium where you can watch the movement of the sky, the sun and the planets. You'll be
able to observe some constellations, fundamentally those that the Sun goes over during the year and that form the
zodiac.
•Short lecture about the Sun and how to observe it safely.
•Observation of the Sun using the specialised telescopes.

2. NIGHT-TIME OBSERVATIONS

The night-time observation is aimed at getting the visitors closer to the wonders of a star-filled sky, something that's getting more and more difficult as a result of light pollution. For this activity, the telescopes of the two main observatories of the centre are used (Observatory 1, Observatory 2).

The standard structure of the activity consists on:

•Guided session in the planetarium where you can watch the movement of the sky, the sun and the planets.
•Naked eye observation of the sky at the outside Agora.
•Observation of the most interesting objects in the night sky (nebulae, galaxies, planets, groups of stars) using the
telescopes.
