What you'll do

I'll pick you up in your hotel/hostal with my pick-up truck to go and inmerse ourselfs in the mítical Catarpe Valley.

I will start talking about how to look at the firmament, the place and the ancient atacama people used to see in the sky.
(i.e. Tracking the movement of stars, identifying planets, the celestial southern pole, zodical constellations, southern constellations, dark andean constellations, ecliptical line)
Then about the nature of light and how Astronomers uses different techniques to measure distances between us and eveything you see.
(i.e. The speed of light, parallax effect, standard candles, special relativity )
We will also talk about the Andean Cosmovision, especifically the Likanantai cosmovision.

After the first talk we will have a coffe break.

Then we'll go to the telescope area in which we are going to see (depending on the time of the year) Planets and Deep Space Objects such as Open Clusters, Closed Clusers, Nebulaes and Galaxies)

As an extra... Astrophotography Session!!

Finally I take you to your hotel.

Astronomy is one of my passions. I wouldn't be living in San Pedro if it wasn't to begin with.
I studied Electrical Engineer in U. de Los Andes, but I learned way more just following my curiosity and it took me up and then far away in Space-Time.
Everything I know comes from how I connected the stars in my brain to form constellations, ideas.
I love to make sense out of the world and wonder (S. P. is a very good place to do so)
So I hope my qualifications matches my hability to interpretate nature,
and you have a life changing experience.
So then you go back spreading the Word.

He was very kind and patient during my trip to see stars and milky way. If I return to San Pedro. I will definitely use him again.

What amazing personal experience of the stars. Vincente knowledge and enthusiasm was unquestionable and I highly recommend anyone in San Pedro go on this tour. It gives a deeper meaning than just looking at the stars. Thank you
