Boundaries vanish when we look skyward then all is about "one people, one sky".
Enjoy our "magical" evening tour-activity in Crete, stargazing Greek Gods and stars at night and travel your mind and your senses to a whole new level of clarity and uniqueness.
Starry nights is a breakthrough new activity in Crete, offered to some chosen villas in Crete, small hotels, families, small group of friends etc. Crete is one of the best places for stargazing.
You don't need to know anything about Astronomy. Anyone can have the opportunity to join this unique activity in Crete. Either you are a completely beginner, or you are an expert in Astrophysics, every time you can learn something new about the vastness of the universe and the uniqueness of our small planet.
The staff of Planetarium of Crete has many years of experience of deep sky observing and with the best available astronomy equipment like 16-inch dobsonian telescopes, can bring the universe in your plate.
3000 stars are visible under dark skies with our naked eyes, which form 88 constellations that ancient Greeks were using to make stories in order to explain the mysteries they didnít understand, so the Greek mythology was born.
Have you ever tried to read star maps? We give to every participant a star map of the current month and a small red flashlight so that you can identify the constellations using Uranography, with the help of our staff or course. This is an incredible process that will free your mind and relax your body. This is also a great opportunity for you to learn how to find your way home at night with the north star!
Join us for an incredible experience under Crete's dark skies, a great night that you will never forget.
