Discover Calar Alto Sky-Astronomy guided tour
Discover Calar Alto Observatory night sky through this astronomy guided tour.
Calar Alto Observatory is set in a privileged place where the night sky is protected by law to provide exceptional conditions for scientific study.
Taking advantage of these particular conditions we offer a educational astronomy guided tour through the universe.
Firstly we will get you to know the infrastructures which form the professional observatory as well as the relevance of the astrophysics research carried there. Secondly the talk will provide you with an insight into the key points of practising observational astronomy.
Afterwards we move out to the dark sky, where we will give the you the basic tools to understand and interpret the workings of the night sky, observing along the way the most interesting astronomical objects of that night.
Our tours are provided by personnel with academic and scientific training.
