In August, the event series inviting the public to enjoy unique thematic evenings under the stars continues, in collaboration with the National Observatory of Athens (NSA). In a talk and astronomical observation using NSA’s telescopes in the South Paths, we observe the celestial dome: the Sun, the Moon, the planets, stars and constellations, and how they are identified in this specific time of year.
In our first August meeting (01/08), we discover the planets Jupiter and Saturn, their similarities and differences to Earth, and their satellites; in the second (08/08), we learn all about the life, death and colors of the stars, the constellations and the sky.
Stars and Constellations:
Up to 60 participants
Free admission on a first-come, first-served basis
