פרטי האירוע

After your arrival (we start on time. Please don't be late) you will be treated to a warm charcuterie and settle down on our mats. In the first part of the observation, we will take you on a celestial tour and a fascinating experience of watching the spectacular night sky of the Yoruham Crater.

With the help of laser beams that almost touch the stars, we will get to know the dome of the sky and the twinkling stars, with fascinating explanations and stories. We will present the constellations of the zodiac, find out how to easily locate the North Star, notice prominent stars and get to know the mythological stories associated with their names.

In the second part of the observation we will move to telescopes. You will have at your disposal a battery of sophisticated telescopes through which we will observe the craters of the moon and the planets, we will get to know deep sky objects, star clusters, galaxies and nebulae - whatever the sky will provide us on the night of the observation.

In the activity there will be a special star training for children aged * 4-8

While sitting on the mats our guides will pass and serve hot herbal tea. And there's nothing like drinking something hot on a desert night.
