Check out a rare celestial treat tonight
Get a chance to look at some heavenly bodies with this free-for-all telescope viewing!
(SPOT.ph) Bright lights in Metro Manila make it a bit hard to witness amazing astronomical events like meteor showers, eclipses, or blue and red moons in the city. To solve this problem, the University of the Philippines Astronomical Society invites anyone who's interested in the heavenly bodies in a free-for-all telescope viewing at the PAGASA Astronomical Observatory on February 1, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
This is good news for those who want to witness the rare celestial treat called a conjunction tonight. Mars, Venus, and the moon will be exceptionally close to each other and will form a bright triangle in the sky. It'll be a sight worth seeing, for sure!
The PAGASA Astronomical Observatory is in the University of the Philippines – Diliman, Quezon City. For more information, visit the UP Astronomical Society's Facebook.
