Summer sky: Perseids

8 August, 2019

Summer sky gives us a unique opportunity in the year for observation. We will learn how to distinguish stars, planets, shooting stars, artificial satellites, airplanes… We will point with a laser in the sky the varius constellations that can be seen easily in the summer skies and we will learn their mythological origin. If we are lucky we will be able to see some shooting stars (Perseids). If you have a telescope and want to learn how to use it, join the workshop on the 7th.
