On April 1, it will be possible to see the Moon, planets, and constellations, from the center of Lisbon. Between 8.30 pm and 11.30 pm, Amoreiras 360o Panoramic View will organize an observation of the stars, in partnership with the Institute of Astrophysics and Space Sciences (IA).
Through the IA’s telescopes, installed at the Amoreiras 360º Panoramic View viewpoint, the mountains, and craters of the Moon, the planets Venus and Mars at the beginning of the night can be observed in detail, and it will also be possible to identify the constellations Taurus, Gemini, and Orion typical of this spring sky. The Pleiades star group, also known as the “seven-star”, will be one of the points of interest to be observed through the telescope.
During this initiative, the fantastic images of the Moon and stars will be immortalized on visitors’ mobile phones, while they will be able to talk to the institute’s astronomers, the ideal guides for an exploration trip to the wonders of the universe.
