Mamalluca Observatory Tour
At sunset we start our trip to the inner Elqui Valley. Passing through the town of San Isidro we will arrive at Mamalluca Amateur Observatory. From this special place you will be able to direct observations of the universe. The observatory itself has a dome in which an electronic telescope makes the observation possible for you to enjoy a pleasant night contemplation of the stars. Some pictures will be displayed and at the same time a instructive talk about the Southern Hemisphere´s stars: In this atmosphere you will be encouraged by the astronomy of Galileo. After this talk, the night observation of stars, planets, galaxies will be carried out. The southern hemisphere is essentially important for the astronomy, that´s why four of the most advanced and best observatories are located in the mountain region of Coquimbo. These observatories are Tololo, Pachon, La Silla and La Campana. We return to La Serena after having enjoyed two hour of astronomical observations.
