What you'll do

We'll start the evening discussing the night sky and our location in the universe. I will show you how to guide yourself using the night sky at any time of the year in an open space at night.

We will talk about the specific targets we will observe through our telescope, which will capture even the faintest objects in the night sky which you would not be able to see with the naked eye. We will also talk about our solar system and the concept of distances in space and light years, relating these to the telescope's visual journey through space and time.

For observation of the night sky we will be using a top of the line professional 11' motorised telescope (observatory level) which will find us any celestial object in the night sky thanks to its GPS technology, capturing hundreds of objects.

Astronomical targets include the moon when visible, visible planets at the time, stars, nebulae, galaxies and star clusters. I can provide you with more information on what we will observe prior to the experience.

There are two locations available to choose from:

- Barcelona City Park (light polluted sky) 40 eur/person

- Regional Natural Park + Astrophotography, best reviewed on the page, 2-3 hours (Dark sky very close to Barcelona, 40 eur/person + extra charge per booking, please enquire)

My parents and I had a wonderful time looking at the stars with Luke in Parc del Garraf. Luke is very passionate about astronomy and we had some very interesting conversations throughout the evening. It was exciting getting to use the telescope and of course, the stars were beautiful 💫 Thank you Luke!

Luke was an incredible guild to the stars. I always wished to cross off watching the stars off my bucket list and this made all my expectations and more. Luke is a great person, with so much knowledge on stars and planets. Thank you again for everything and your hospitality!

The most incredible experience! If in doubt, don't. I booked this for my 30th birthday along with 5 girlfriends. I wasn't sure if everyone would find this interesting, but one by one, each of us was hugely impressed. Luke is fantastic, he gave us an unforgettable experience. Must must must do! Don't hesitate, book now!!!
