Stargaze at Praia da Marinha

Night astronomical observation with telescope

The activity “Astronomia no Verão”, a nocturnal astronomical observation with a telescope, returns on the 22nd of July, between 21:00 and 23:30, in Praia da Marinha. This is an initiative of the Municipality of Lagoa, in collaboration with the Centro Ciência Viva do Algarve.
