The moon landing with Astronomitaly
On Friday, 18th September and Saturday, 19th September, in collaboration with Astronomitaly, the Averau Refuge celebrates the Apollo 11 lunar mission and its crew, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, the first persons to step onto the lunar surface on 20th July 1969.
L’evento, inizialmente programmato per il 20 e 21 luglio, è saltato a causa delle avverse condizioni meteo, ma abbiamo deciso di riprovarci venerdì 18 e sabato 19 settembre sperando nel bel tempo. Stesso programma e sempre in fase di luna nuova!
Two professionalsequipped with optical instruments for the observation of the sky will be available to anyone who wants to stargaze. On these two days there’s New Moon and this lunar phase, combined with an excellent position of the Milky Way, allows the best view of the year.
