MERIDA – This Saturday November 25 will be the perfect time to take a look at the night sky to appreciate the amazing stars, nebulas, galaxies and planets of our whole universe, at the 9th edition of the “Night of the stars”.
Inspired by the “Nuit des Étoiles”, which has been carried out in France since 1991, this year’s activity will take place at the Animaya Zoo, from 6 pm to 10 pm, said Juan José Durán Nájera, coordinator of the planetarium “Arcadio Poveda Ricalde “.
“This year will also be an occasion to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the first object manufactured by man that was launched into space, the Sputnik 1,” said Durán Najera.
During the day there will be observation with telescopes, workshops, conferences, storytelling sessions, lectures, puppet theater presentations and film screenings, among other activities. For this, several spaces have been arranged, including six tents.
In tent number one, the French Alliance will inform about the activities that can be done during the day.
In tent two, sponsored by the Astronomical Society of the Uady and the French Alliance, there will be workshops and games for children, such as astronomical lottery, astronomical Twister and constellation formation.
In tent three there will be guiñol theater performed by students of the Faculty of Chemistry of the Uady, and in tent four, the Astronomical Society will offer the talks “Space colonies”, “Space, the last frontier” and “The paradox of Fermi: Are we very alone or far away?” In the fifth, the Faculty of Anthropological Sciences and Sedeculta will present the work “The small lost planet”. There, the silent films “The dream of the astronomer”, “Eclipse of the sun in the full moon” and “The trip to the moon” will be screened.
In tent six, personnel of the planetarium “Arcadio Poveda” and the Museum of Natural History will give the workshop “Use of the planisphere and Fide program”, and in tent seven the Cephcis of the UNAM will offer talks and workshops.
Likewise, in the esplanade of the park, the Explorer traveling planetarium will be mounted, which will have projections every 30 minutes.
There will be a zone of lasers in which the characteristics of the night sky will be explained, and a zone of telescopes so that participants can observe from nebulas to galaxies.
Also five launches of hydro-powered rockets will also be carried out on the esplanade.
