On April 20, the Ilatargi Astronomical Group of Bergara and the astronomy department of Aranzadi will install telescopes on the terrace of the Donostia City Hall to enjoy the stars under the slogan "Starlight gaua: Turn on the stars".

To facilitate the vision of the stars the City will turn off the lights of the terrace for two hours and provide different activities open to the public and free. Among them, a screen will be installed inside the town hall where, through the Stellarium program, explanations will be given to better understand what we observe in the sky with the naked eye.

In addition, a space will be created where adults and young people can make drawings or other contributions on the light of the stars and light pollution to complete a mural among all of them.

The blackout will begin once it is dark, from 9:00 pm to 11:00 pm, and the other activities will take place simultaneously.In this way they want to raise awareness about light pollution and claim the right of the population to enjoy the contemplation of the sky.
