Come with us and together with a Starlight Guide enjoy the stars as you have never seen them before.
Teide National Park is one of the best places in the world for stargazing and as so we will be taking advantage of the singularities of this area on the island of Tenerife.
The main aim of the activity is to get to understand the sky as our ancestors did using only our eyes. We will recognize the typical constellations of the season of the year in which we carry out the activity from an archaeoastronomic point of view. This means that we will be mixing history with astronomy and archeology. We will name and point out at the most significant planets, galaxies or clusters that we can spot during this activity.
We will learn to orient ourselves in the night as our ancestors did in the middle of the ocean or the desert. We will locate the circumpolar constellations, those that evolve around the polar star: Cassiopea, Ursa Major, Ursa Minor.
Also, our guides will introduce you into some interesting terminology as light years, distances and sizes of stars as well as legends and mythology. We will learn that the sky has its own calendar and as so we will be locating great geometric figures that marks the passage of time.We will locate the zodiacal constellations typical of the season of the year in which we carry out the activity.
We will distinguish planets and stars, as well as the different nuances of these last objects and we will use the telescope to approach one of the most significant celestial objects of the night (moon or planets depending on the time of year in which the activity is performed).
In short, the main objective will be to plant the seed of curiosity so that when they return home they continue to observe the sky and discover much more of the exciting third horizon.
