Night guided tours to the Fabra Observatory are backMiércoles, 23 de september de 2020
Once the Dinner with Stars season is over, the Fabra Observatory focuses on its scientific activity and opens its doors to lovers of the universe with a visit and an astronomical observation that will not leave you indifferent.
Night guided tours to this heritage space in Barcelona begin on October 23rd and are available every Friday and Saturday night until May 29th.
With this experience, attendees will be able to visit all the corners of the Fabra Observatory on a tour of each of its rooms: the museum, the modernist room, the adjoining room with the meridian telescope and the large dome where the great Mailhat refractor of 38 cm of diameter is located. In addition, the visitors will enjoy a scientific conference to discover the secrets of the universe at the hands of our astrophysicists and an observation of a reference celestial body through the dome telescope. As a final point, the panoramic views of Barcelona at night are contemplated from the upper terrace of this 116-year-old building in the Collserola mountain range.
As well as on the rest of the activities that we produce from Sternalia, the night guided tours to Fabra have all the preventive health measures for the protection of COVID-19. The public must go to the appointment with their own mask, the temperature is taken at the entrance and access to hydroalcoholic gel is guaranteed during the entire session. Furthermore, the capacity of the groups has been reduced in order to be able to maintain adequate safety distances. For observation with the telescope, special glasses are provided to avoid contact with the eyepiece, and they are disinfected after each use.
A universe full of curiosities to discover
The observations that will be carried out during this season will focus on different celestial bodies, from planets to star systems, passing through some nebulae: Mars, the red planet; the Moon, our natural satellite and the fifth largest in the solar system; Alcyone, the solar system of the constellation Taurus; Albireo, the "beta of the swan", a double star of the constellation of the Swan; the Orion nebula, one of the brightest in existence; and 24 Comae Berenices, a triple star system. To know the body that can be enjoyed every night, you have a detailed calendar available.
