We will make observation of the deep sky through high-end, computerized and manual telescopes with which we will make an equatorial and azumuthal sweep of the objects visible during the night in Atacama, depending on the time of the year we can observe: planets, open clusters and closed, galaxies and stars. Where we can distinguish its shape and colors with great ease. Add to the explanatory scientific talk of our astronomy guides Patricio and Nathan who seek to dynamically and didactically deliver the scientific information of the universe. We can also relate the visible constellations of the southern hemisphere with the help of a laser pointer. If you like to know about the Andean archeology-astronomy of Latin America, you should ask for an explanation from Patricio, who is the speaker in the explanatory talk about how our American ancestors related the cosmos to the geographical and cultural zone.

The view of the moon was astonishing, my kids coulnd't believe their eyes. And the telescope was powerful enough to see star clusters in detail."

* A traveler said: "Great bus tour through many of the sights around San Pedro. Our guide, Ricardo, was great. Lots of good knowledge (in English and Spanish) with a fun, charismatic energy. Breakfast was very nice. Better than the standard hostel/hotel fare for sure. Be prepared for high altitude though. One person on our tour spent most of the time with his head in a bucket or sleeping on the bus."
