The Fabra Observatory sights Barcelona Sky.

Posted on 21 September 2009 in Barcelona, always!

The night-time observation season at the Fabra Observatory will be making Jupiter its star autumn attraction and visitors will be able to marvel at its shape and its four satellites.

But Jupiter will not be the only heavenly body you can see at the Observatory. Every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday in the months of October, November and December the ‘Barcelona Sky’ programme will allow privileged views of our planet’s own satellite, the moon.

Visitors will be able to observe all the special features of its surface, including its craters, shadows, mountains, valleys, dunes and precipices.

Besides watching the sky, visitors will have the chance to see Barcelona from one of its most spectacular viewing points and to acquaint themselves with the Observatory building itself, which for over a century has been dedicated to astronomical discoveries.
