Planetario del Parco delle Foreste Casentinesi, Monte Falterona e Campigna
The planetarium reconstructs, within a room with a special dome, the celestial vault as we would see it outdoors in a place far from the annoying city lights.
By playing with the celestial sphere and simulating spatial-temporal shifts to discover the northern sky in the various seasons one can recognize the constellations, the motions of stars, Moon, Sun and planets and one can learn to orient oneself with the stars.
... AND NOT ONLY The Center has tools and didactic support materials: tools for measurements and observations, slides, videos, CD-ROMs, software, magazines, books and informative material. The large external square can be used for experiments on the movement of the Sun and houses the terrace of the Sun, a series of educational tools that allow the determination of the Sun's height on the horizon, the identification of the passage to the meridian and to the equinoxes, the measure of time.
In the winter months the activities of the Park Planetarium are mainly dedicated to school groups and not and the opening of the structure is only possible by reservation. In March, the informative evenings begin which continue for all the spring and summer months on a monthly and / or fortnightly basis.
In the months of July and August, during the informative evenings (weekly) there are some night excursions for direct observation of the sky. In autumn, astronomy enthusiasts can deepen their knowledge with the Astronomy Course.
