  • At first glance, it is a very rustic Observatory, already in the talk is very good and the experience of looking at planets with telescopes is fabulous, it is worthwhile to spend a night in this plan.

  • For a small fee, you can enjoy the star in the Tatacoa desert. The explanation of the Observatory staff is very good and educational, giving us information about the milky way and a multitude of constellations. A good time to enjoy, but if you're in bridge surely many people and not be so relaxing experience.

  • The Observatory is immersed in the Tatacoa desert, famous for the darkness of the sky having no large cities too close. Admission is $10000 and the talk starts at around 7:00 pm. The director of the place offers a pleasant Conference in which addresses issues such as the constellations, orientation and basic tips for observation. There are two telescopes available for observing the planets and the Moon depending on the date in which we are witnessing. I went on a full moon day, so the observation of the stars was not the best. Take into account this detail to schedule the visit. It is also important to try to go in the summer to take advantage of the cloudless sky. It must ensure keeping off cell phones and cameras and silence to make the most of the experience. If you have luck, you can see satellites and Star shooting stars pass at a glance. Eventually there are astronomical festivals, check online before scheduling the visit.
