Our GUIDED TOUR OF THE NIGHT SKY is included in the astronomical observation activities that we carry out from Astronomical Tourism and the Astronomer’s Nest.
The explanations of our astronomer and the use of astronomical equipment will make you travel through a dark sky to distant places that humans have never set foot on. The areas where we propose the experiences are located in rural environments where we enjoy less light pollution.
You will have at your disposal Rural Houses and Caves, to enjoy charming accommodations that have Starlight accommodation certification. We have accommodations such as La Granja Caves (Benalúa de Guadix), Algarves de Gorafe Caves, (Gorafe) and Balcones de Piedad Caves (Balcones-Olivar Guadix). All of them certified by the Starlight Foundation.
During the more than two hours of the tour you can see different celestial objects:
– The Moon, the only natural satellite on Earth, marked with dark lunar seas of volcanic origin, where humans have made a manned descent.
– Planetary nebulae (remnants of the death of a star).
– Galaxies (spiral galaxies with swirling arms, colliding galaxies, large universes made up of billions of stars).
