Citizen astronomy

  • Year: 2017 > 2019

An open group in collaboration with the Astronomy Department of the Aranzadi Sciences Society that will discuss topics related to astronomy from the perspective of a member of the public. The group was started during the public astronomy sessions held at Hirikilabs in August, coinciding with the Perseid maximum.


A.T.1 ApI Astronomy for the Blind


The first project proposed by the group is entitled Astronomy for the Blind, although it is designed for all types of attendees whether they have vision problems or not. What is different about the session is that the objects constructed in it, in addition to being seen, must be able to and / or must be perceived through other senses such as hearing or touch.

The starting point is to design a system of panels that form a set in which a certain number of constellations, the Ecliptic and the celestial equator are represented.

The group meets every Wednesday from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Hirikilabs.

Gathering on Citizen Astronomy 2018

09-08-2018 > 11-08-2018

This year a phenomenon of "astronomical" dimensions will take place in Tabakalera: a single topic can be seen across the work of many people in the project. As is often said in astronomy, part of the summer programme has been the result of a "chain of events".
