Stargazing session planned at university in Cartago

The technical university in Cartago is sponsoring a stargazing program Saturday to mark the International Day of Astronomy.

The event includes discussions, observations with a solar telescope during the day and night viewing.

The evening starts at the university’s Centro de Investigación en Computación at 10 a.m. with discussions, including one on the solar system.

There is a lunch break and food is for sale. The afternoon includes the use of the solar telescope from 1 to 2 p.m. and additional discussions and lectures until 5 p.m.

By that time the sky will be darkening, and the center of activity moves to the football field where the night sky will be viewed, said the university.

There is no charge and registration is not required.
