About: We will be observing the sky with the local community, aiming to communicate the idea that the universe has no borders, the frontiers between constellations, or between scales of distance, are not natural, but a human construction. In space, as in Earth, only the weak see the necessity of drawing artificial borders. For that, we will be observing close objects, such as the Moon, or Mars, then move to double stars such as Almach, or further objects like the Orion Nebula. Estaremos observando el cielo con la comunidad local, para comunicar la idea de que el universo no tiene fronteras, que los límites entre constelaciones, o entre escalas de distancia, no son algo natural, sino una construcción humana.
