Museo del Meteorito

San Pedro de Atacama
#1 of 12 Museums in Antofagasta Region
I had a fantastic time visiting San Pedro’s meteorite museum and learning about the formation of earth and the different types and components of different meteorites.
Some of the best and most unique meteorites we have seen anywhere in the world are housed in this museum in a dusty, out of the way adventure outpost of San Pedro de Atacama.

So interesting to learn about the amazing international effort to establish ALMA, the mindblowing engineering behind it, the discoveries it has unlocked, and how it links with and supports local culture.
The ALMA radio observatory facility conducts free tours with advance online reservation, although it is possible to get in from a waiting list the morning of the tour.

I have the opportunity to visit the ruins of this old silver refinery and an impressive museum.

Normally ESO offers tours only one day week, but because of the total solar eclipse meant that there were thousands of astronomers and astronomy buffs around, they gave tours all the first week of July.
You learn a lot about history, can visit inside one of the telescopes, get access to the control room, and if fortunate you can talk to one or more of the scientists around.

The English-speaking guide gave an excellent introduction, carefully pitched while communicating a real enthusiasm for astronomy, and then enabled the group to view a number of different planets and constellations...
Airport Calama, law cost flights from Satiago, taxi to San Pedro de Atacama, plenty of cheap hostels, restaurants, unforgettable tours to Lagunas di Antiplantes, Laguna Sojar, astronomic tours, geysiers...... MUST...

Atacama Observatory

After a brief introduction about astronomy there was plenty of time to observe stars, constellations, planets and other objects.
It as a great refresher and looking at the stars through a telescope was a wonderful experience
