Highlights of 1・2 month

"Winter diamond" that shines beautifully in the southern sky appears!

The clear air makes winter the best time to see the stars in 1.
From 1 to 2, the southern sky will be lit up with a 'diamond made of stars'.
It is called the "winter diamond" because it is the brightest star of magnitude 1 and its shape is a large hexagon.
If you can observe it in the night sky, you can create romantic memories by presenting diamonds to your important partner or family.

At the Minami-Aso Luna Observatory, you can use the Hoshi no Concierge® and one of Kyushu's largest astronomical telescopes to explore the Galilean satellites of Jupiter observed by Galileo Galilei 400 years ago, as well as the surroundings of Saturn. Every night, we hold an astronomical observation party where you can see with your own eyes the mysterious ring that spreads out into the sky.
