Special events


Every so often, we have the privilege of watching rare astronomical events that may, once again, fascinate an extend our knowledge of the Cosmos.

For these unique astronomical events, the Institute organizes (depending on the importance of the event), special observation session focused on explaining the event, the possibility of recurrence, why it can be so special, etc.

Special Events are considered

Solar Eclipses (visible from Europe)Lunar Eclipses (visible from Europe)CometsMeteor ShowersAurorae (if their observation may be possible from Catalonia)

If you are interested in watching these events, check out our Astronomical Calendar to see when they might occur and contact the Institute to see whether there will be an observation event programmed for the such day.
