Telescopes and star maps. Studying the sky in Fuenlabrada

Once we made our telescopes and worked with the star map, we observe the sky in April, the 19th. We could see the Polaris, Canis major, Orion, Ursa minor and Ursa major, and some planets, like Venus, placing them in our map.

We also used the Stellarium in class to compare the sky in the three points: Gualdo Tadino, in Italy, Eskilstuna, in Sweden and Fuenlabrada, so to as determine if there were little or big differences.


We project the sky in May, the 24th in order to know if we could see the stars being so close of the North Pole. That is the problem: the most dark hour would be betwen 24:00 and 1:00 more or less.

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...
