    This astronomical tour is offered every night, with the exception of 5 nights a month when there is a full moon.

    We will observe the deep sky through high-end computerised and hand-held telescopes. Depending on the time of year we will be able to observe: planets, open and closed clusters, galaxies and stars.
    In addition we will be able to relate the visible constellations of the southern hemisphere with the help of a laser pointer. If you want to know about the Andean archaeo-astronomy of Latin America you should ask Patricio who is the speaker in the explanatory talk about how our American ancestors related the cosmos to the geographical and cultural area.
