Cosmovisions. A Spanish present for our Swedish friends

The Spanish Erasmus+ team has studied the different Cosmovisions, with the help of the Philosophy teacher, Esther Gonz�lez.
This is the first task in relation to the humanistic part of the project, approaching the myths and legends about the universe.

For the nordic people universe was divided in 9 kingdoms which were located in a huge tree called Yggdrasil. These kingdoms were Asgard, Midgard, Helheim, Nidaveir, Alfheim, Musspelheim, Vanaheim, J�tunheim, Nilfheim.

An eagle called "Ve�rf�nir" lived on the top of Yggdrasil while a dragon called Fafnir slept in the roots.

In its branches there were a deer called Eikbyrnir and the squirrell Ratatosk.

Also, there was a big snake curled in Midgard's sea called J�nmundgander.

Total eclipse of the Moon.

Beautiful night to observe the sky with our telescopes or simply with binoculars. The total eclipse gave us wonderful images for our Erasmus...
