On the occasion of World Tourism Day 2015, Ad Astra La Palma in collaboration with Breña Baja Government, organises a free public event on Sunday 27th of September from 9 pm to 10:30 pm on Los Cancajos beach.
The activity consists in a relaxing night walk on the beach, where all the participants will experiment in first person the big distances among planets during a virtual tour through our Solar System.
A qualified Starlight Guide and Astronomer will tell you the history of the formation of the Sun and planets, revealing the secrets of Venus’ volcanoes and the ice under the surface of Mars, the mysteries of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot and the ones about Saturn’s rings and, finally, curious anecdotes about the Moon.
Moreover, if weather conditions are good, you will recognise the most popular constellations and the Pole Star with the help of an astronomical laser pointer and multimedia resources.
At the end, you will be able to contemplate the lunar craters and the Saturn’s rings through a powerful telescope.
Activity for general public, with or without astronomical knowledge. Registration is not required.
