way you can understand what will be taught later. Our experienced
guides will provide useful information to enjoy the tour to the
fullest, as what is a constellation, how to learn from them, how to
understand a sky map and recognize the main stars. In order to do
this, the guides are supported with a green laser pointer, which
helps them indicate precisely which star are referring to, in that
stage of the tour.
