Noites no Observatório

Until we organise local events again, we will be online through the series The Universe Online.

Noites no Observatório invites the public to experience the Universe, on the last Saturday of every month, through public lectures and observations of the night sky with telescopes.

This project of Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA) started in the late 2009. Since November 2015 this sessions are organised in partnership with the Planetário Calouste Gulbenkian – Centro Ciência Viva.

The admission is free but subject to registration.
