Greetings and Clear Skies!

On July 27, World event of a Lunar Eclipse,

The Astronomy Club of San Agustín School developed an Observational activity where we focused on determining a dilemma in reference to the institutions of sciences, observatories, planetariums and avtivists of Astronomy in Boliva:

Was it possible to observe the Eclipse in Cochabambaba, Bolivia (17.4140 ºS, 66.1653º W)?

Being that different opinions and affirmations existed, the Club decided to arm its telescopes and to observe the sky at 6:13 pm. Being able to confirm the visibility of the Eclipse, the answer: Yes it was:


The activity went very well, with learning experiences for the students and their own scientific incursion for Astronomy in Bolivia
