On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the arrival of man on the Moon, we decided to launch a special activity related to the Apollo missions that made this milestone of humanity possible.
The moon is our only natural satellite and every month it visits us. Its shine decreases the number of visible stars but allows us to enjoy the most amazing object observed by a telescope.
In this activity we are focus in The Moon and the visible planets of the Solar System. We start the tour with a naked eye explication of the most important stars and constellations, how to find Polaris Star and the ecliptic line.
In addition you will konw and learn the history of the Apollo missions, among them one of the best known as, Apollo XI, and many interesting facts about these missions.
Also we can enjoy of a different vision of Teide National Park, illuminated by The Moon, which show us a magical landscape completely different from the daylight vision of the Unesco Woldwide Heritage.
