About

10-11 January - Cosmic Landscapes Exhibition at SINTEAL: For the first two days of the 100 Hours of Astronomy period, the "Cosmic Landscapes" exhibition will be held at SINTEAL (the state teachers and education union), showcasing 20 banners of wonderful images of celestial objects (from planets to nebulae and galaxies) obtained by some of the best observatories in the world, followed by accurate descriptions in local language, in a didatical and effective way of science communication in Astronomy, for a public capable of passing on the inherent wonder and knowledge to younger generations.

11 January - Public Telescope Observing Session at SINTEAL: This telescope observing session will follow a lecture (also registered here) at SINTEAL on Friday, and simultaneously to an exhibition held at the same place (also registered here), in a way that we'll be holding a total of three events at this venue for that day. We expect to begin the observing session soon after the end of the lecture, maybe still in the twilight, when the crescent Moon will be high in the sky, and then, as there are no interesting planets to observe these days, we'll try to show the brightest visible deep sky objects, such as the Pleiades and the Great Orion Nebula.

11 January - Lecture: "The Genival Leite Lima Astronomy Observatory (OAGLL) and Astronomy Education in the State Schools of Alagoas: This lecture will happen at SINTEAL (state teachers and education workers union), at 4 p.m. (16h). Although open to the public, we expect predominant attendance of teachers, who will learn about the activities carried out by the observatory with the objective of improving the quality of Astronomy education in the local state schools and pass on that information to their schools' managers and students.

12 January - Lecture about "Hidden Oceans in the Solar System": This lecture will happen in two sessions during the third day of the 100 Hours of Astronomy period, one at 10 a.m. (10 h) and the other at 3 p.m. (15 h). They will happen simultaneously to the "Cosmic Landscapes" exhibition (details described in the respective registered event) at IBAMA (the Brazilian Institute of the Environment and Natural Resources). This event will happen on Saturday, which is the day the Institute is open to the general public, with an average attendance of 3000 people. The room has a capacity for 150 people at a time. Therefore, we expect 300 people to attend the two sessions.

12 January - Public Telescope Observing Session at Usina Ciência: This telescope observing session will happen at our headquarters, at "Usina Ciência", which is itself a place of the local Federal University (UFAL) for Science Communication. It will happen as our final event of the third day of the 100HA period. We expect the crescent Moon to be high in the sky in the beginning. After that, we'll try to show the brightest visible deep sky objects, such as the Pleiades and the Great Orion Nebula. We take this opportunity to communicate that not only this saturday we'll be holding public, free, telescope sessions, but every saturday, starting at 19:30.

12-13 January Cosmic Landscapes Exhibition at IBAMA-AL: For the third day of the 100 Hours of Astronomy period, the "Cosmic Landscapes" exhibition will be held at IBAMA (the Brazilian Institute of Environment and Natural Resources), showcasing 20 banners of wonderful images of celestial objects (from planets to nebulae and galaxies) obtained by some of the best observatories in the world, followed by accurate descriptions in local language, in a didatical and effective way of science communication in Astronomy.

13 January - Free Telescope Observing Session at Alagoinhas: This telescope observing session will happen at the beautiful urban seafront of our city, in a point of huge public attendance during the weekends. By experience with previous events of this nature, people that are walking with friends and families, jogging, strolling, passing by etc. tend to stop by and observe with us for a moment. We are always glad to share explanations and invite for visiting at our headquarters. This will be our closing event of the 100HA period.
