Astronomical Tour with Guide and Pick Up to San Pedro de Atacama

We will make observation of the deep sky through high-end, computerized and manual telescopes with which we will make an equatorial and azumuthal sweep of the objects visible during the night in Atacama, depending on the time of the year we can observe: planets, open clusters and closed, galaxies and stars. Where we can distinguish its shape and colors with great ease. Add to the explanatory scientific talk of our astronomy guides Patricio and Nathan who seek to dynamically and didactically deliver the scientific information of the universe. We can also relate the visible constellations of the southern hemisphere with the help of a laser pointer. If you like to know about the Andean archeology-astronomy of Latin America, you should ask for an explanation from Patricio, who is the speaker in the explanatory talk about how our American ancestors related the cosmos to the geographical and cultural zone.

Review of: Astronomic tour
What an experience. We went there at full moon, so we had a focus on the moon, but we were able to see many stars and two planets and it was really unique. The Astronomy tour is a must if you are in San Pedro de Atacama

They were both very knowledgeable, the group was only 7, relax atmosphere and fun. they gave us a blanket and a hot drink, which we appreciated.

Review of: Astronomic tour
The guides are very knowledgeable about astronomy! It a great place to observe the sky in Atacama as the climate is very dry. I loved to learn about the southern constellations and galaxies as I have never seen them at home, in the northern hemisphere.

This was a great experience! Felipe and Paz (the guides) were excellent, friendly and knowledgeable and took very good care of us! They had blankies, hot chocolate, coffee and tea and snacks available, were punctual and very professional! My three friends and I all left feeling very satisfied with the service provided. The guides took the time to answer all questions and each of us had plenty of time to look at this amazing sky through their telescope. I highly recommend taking this tour; it was one of the highlights of our visit to San Pedro de Atacama. Thank you Paz and Felipe for this wonderful experience!
