During the months of June and July, the museum organizes evenings dedicated to astronomy and observing the sky through the observatory’s telescopes. The proposal also includes a picnic in the astronomical park watching the sunset. Before dinner a show is scheduled at the planetarium and after dinner, with the favor of darkness, the evening continues at the observatory pointing to the most beautiful objects in the sky of the month.
Reset the distances between us and a planet? You can, at least with your eyes!
Located in the park of the Villa, the astronomical observatory allows you to observe the main celestial objects in the sky live and “up close”. These in-depth evenings are dedicated to lovers and the curious of the genre and include observation through telescopes of a lineup of seasonal objects with guided study by museum experts. Depending on the weather conditions, the telescopes will be focused on the Hercules cluster, the double stars of the Cygnus, the Leo galaxies and many others today in the deep sky.
