Educational Program

Designed for students and educational institutions.

We arrived, learned a lot, were given blankets, given tea, learned more in the traditional planetarium style, then went outside to view our subject. I don’t write these reviews ever. My wife was so happy since she’s been asking her dad to clean the lens on his telescope for 3 years. I’m glad he didn’t. This was a magical experience. My wife was literally giddy.

We have seen observatories all over the world and the value of this tour was priceless, exceptional. We did the private tour and were so glad because we had more time with the telescopes and got to ask so many questions.

El recorrido consiste de tres partes, una explicación mediante unas diapositivas, luego una sala con proyector donde simulan en cielo y las constelaciones (aquí aprendí a identificar de manera rápida la Cruz del Sur) y por último en el jardín exterior colocan tres telescopios donde puedes ver las estrellas que en ese momento se aprecian mejor.

We had the most amazing time! … everyone was amazed by what we saw, the presentation was wonderful and interesting, the staff was knowledgeable and friendly... it was so wonderful to have your team share their knowledge and southern skies that we are not used to!
