פרטי האירוע

Every year it happens again.On the nights between December 13-15, the richest meteor shower of the year reaches its peak - the Geminids, which can reach a rate of 160 meteors per hour. By comparison, the more familiar Perseid shower that occurs in August peaks at about 80 meteors per hour, so there's plenty to look forward to.

We will take you on a celestial tour with the great and fascinating story of the sky, from the development of astronomy to the great discoveries of our time.

With the help of laser beams that almost touch the stars, we will get to know the night sky, the beautiful Milky Way and the twinkling stars, with fascinating explanations and stories. On the way we will be able to witness the wonderful sight of many meteors that will fly in the sky.

We will present to the participants the constellation that represents their luck in the sky and we will understand what the zodiac is all about. We will notice prominent constellations and find out how to easily locate the North Star.

During the training, our guides will pass and serve hot herbal tea. And there's nothing like drinking something hot on a desert night.

In the second part of the observation we will move to telescopes. Very large telescopes will be available to the participants 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.
