Autumn astroparty
November 2-nd - Varshets


Astroparty Varshets is put through during the autumn to allow observation of the autumnal sky.

Another astronomy party is held in the village of Baykal, Dolna Metropolia municipality, in late spring – at the beginning of May, to allow students to observe the celestial objects seen in that season.

The Astroparty lasts for 2 days: Saturday and Sunday. We start on Saturday with astronomical lectures, practical activities, quizzes. Then we continue with astronomical lectures following a dinner and end up with astronomical observations.
