6+

On the 05 and 06 October 2019 the Open Days festival is held at the Zvenigorod Observatory of INASAN. The sessions for guests start at 12, 4 and 8 p.m. The sessions starting at 12 and 4 p.m. will be carried out with the guided tours. During the tour the guests will visit the towers to see the Observatory telescopes and be able to talk to their guide asking the questions on the astronomy, watch popular science films and listen to lectures. If the sky is clear during the daytime, guests can also see the Sun through the telescope. During the 8 p.m. session if the sky is clear the guests can also look at the stars through a telescope. Night observations will be carried out until 11 pm – in case of the clear sky, obviously.

ATTENTION! During the 8 p.m. session in the case of the clear sky there will be no guided tours!

The observatory has no facilities for guests to stay overnight. The car can be left on the driveway.

If you are late to the starting time, don’t try to enter the territory on your own. Call the stated telephone number and wait at the check passage.

For information, please, call +7-919-7215419 (enabled on working days 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.)

Large organized groups should call and inform of their visit individually.

Summary:

On March 30 and 31, 2019 another festival “Open Days” was held in the Zvenigorod Observatory of INASAN, organized by the Institute together with the Children’s Art Center of Zvenigorod. This time the number of guests turned out to be unusually large, and reached seven hundred people.

During the sessions, the guests of the festival visited the telescopes of the observatory and listened to popular science lectures. The graduate students of INASAN traditionally tried their strengths as lectures. Unfortunately, the weather allowed conducting an observational program only on Saturday, but it was quite successful.

Traditionally, the members of the Moscow Astronomical Club also helped to organize the observations.
