We will pick you up at your hotel in La Serena to go to a place far from the city and without light pollution, in the shore of the Embalse Puclaro, so we can appreciate without problems one of the clearest skies in the world for the practice of astronomy. With this Astronomical Tour we will receive information as an introduction to the astronomy. Our guide, equipped with a laser pointer, will teach us how to identify objects in the starry sky, like planets and constellations that are million light years away from our planet. In addition, we will make observation through a 12 inches telescope that will allow us to see objects that we cannot see with the naked eye. The nights without moon, we will take a group picture, and the nights with moon you will be able to take pictures of it with your phone. Once we end the activity, we will return to La Serena.
*Part of the tour is made during curfew because there is a special permit for astrotourism in charge of the operator, so you don’t have to worry about anything, besides bringing your own documents.
*Remember carrying with you your id card or passport, vacation leave if you are traveling from a city in phase 2, or inter-regional travel permit if you are traveling from a city in phase 3 or superior.
*In case you want to book this tour, but you are staying in Coquimbo, you have to be at Francisco de Aguirre Ave. and Pedro Pablo Muñoz St. at the starting time of the activity, except if you are staying at the Hotel Enjoy, where we will pick you up.
