The Moon in Montjuïc

The Big Idea

Although many believe that a big city is not the ideal scenario for astronomical observation, we have discovered the lunar eclipse from Montjuïc, the Magic Mountain of Barcelona.

Description

Who says you can not enjoy astronomy in the city? Barcelona is a good example. In Montjuïc, the iconic mountain where the Olympic Games of ’92 took place, members of the Astronomical Association of Barcelona (ASTER), together with other enthusiasts, met to observe the cosmos and to enjoy the lunar eclipse that took place on June 15, 2011. We learned what an eclipse is from one of the most historic places in the Catalan capital: the Montjuïc castle, once used as a strategic point by the military. Now in Montjuïc, instead of cannons, we can find telescopes pointing to the sky.
