What you'll do

Watch the sky through the Galileo's instruments

Your journey in the cosmos begins with the observation of the stars to the naked eye to discover the constellations that we will use for orientation in the firmament. Then we'll look at the "sky of the past" learning how to use the Galilean telescope and jovilabe. The modern telescope in the astronomical dome will take you closer to the planets, galaxies, star clusters.. straight into the Space!
