The Buenos Aires Planetarium has been fully renewed last year, including edge technology and offering amazing new possibilities. It is located in the woods of Palermo in one of the most beautiful green areas of our city. During June, it offers two great programs: Journey to the stars (a presentation from the American Museum of Natural History) and the opportunity to see the sky by night, in the open air.
“Journey to the Stars” is a marvelous immersive experience created by astrophysicists and scientific visualization experts of the American Museum of Natural History of New York (in collaboration with NASA and 40 scientists from different countries). The astronomic show was presented in 2009 in Hayden Planetarium of NYC, and now arrives to Buenos Aires. It presents extraordinary telescopic images and amazing simulations invite to a travel through time and space. Tuesdays to Fridays at 1PM, 4PM and 5PM. Saturdays and Sundays, 2PM, 3PM, 4PM, 5PM, 6PM and 7PM.
Another chance is to see the stars from a telescope located outside the Planetarium by night. The idea is to rediscover the sky every Saturday and Sunday at 7PM. The moon, the planets, the stars, the nebulas and star clusters are part of the experience.
