Goodbye to the summer holidays

On the last weekend of the month of the stars, the skies will be clear and dark: come to Mitzpe Ramon for a soothing weekend of crystal skies, soak up the cool desert atmosphere and recharge yourselves with fresh energy before the start of the school year.

A host of astronomical night activities are on offer and we extend a special invitation to astronomy enthusiasts a moment before the beginning of the new school year.

August 17-19
Classic Astronomy Week marked by Perseids Meteor Shower

A classic weekend for astronomical observations and viewing of the annual Perseids meteor showers.

Did you know? The Perseids shower occurs when the Earth moves through the dust trail left by the Swift-Tuttle comet. The Perseids are so called because the point from which they appear to come, called the radiant, lies in the constellation Perseus, named after the mythological hero. Its shape looks like Perseus holding Medusa’s head in his hand.

Around the telescopes there will be stories related to the visible stars, based on the Greek mythology and emphasis on Perseus.
Star-inspired films will also be screened outdoors in the Spice Route Quarter.
