Disconnect looking at the sky
Looking at the sky is always interesting, there is not a single day that we find the clouds in the same position, we clearly observe all the stars or the moon shines equally. In Catalonia we like to look at the sky, and not only at the meteorological level, but also to glimpse the Universe beyond the clouds, and on which we still do not know so many things!
Since time immemorial, we humans have felt the need to look at the sky and answer the questions we were asked. Astronomy, the science that has studied the universe and celestial bodies or stars for millennia, was born with this intention. From this point, astronomical observatories, created by research, training and dissemination in the astronomical field, emerged.
In Catalonia we find a wide range of astronomical observatories spread across the territory, some of them, located in places that enjoy exceptional astronomical observation conditions, or what is the same, areas accredited with the Starlight seal, endorsed by UNESCO and which measures, among other parameters, the transparency of the sky, its luminosity and the so-called "seeing", that is, the distorting effect of the atmosphere on the images of objects.
We also have a wide range of astronomical observation points, places that have the best conditions to admire the sky.
