Well explained introduction with fact and theory, prior to moving outside to see the content of the night’s sky, which is followed by use of the Observatory’s telescope. Fantastic position and well surfaced road to access the venue. All round thumbs up!

Glad you enjoyed it. Weather these weeks is really being crazy and unsual. We even had snow this week just few kilometers from us! :-( I hope we can see you again in the future with clearer skies. Thanks for your review!
