The best sky for seeing the stars

The ARA newspaper discussed the inauguration of Albanyà Astronomical Observatory in its Sunday, July 2 edition, highlighting that “the municipality is the only one in the whole of Spain that can claim to have the seal of the International Dark Sky Association (IDA), which certifies it as an International Dark Sky Park.” The text also revealed that Albanyà is the town “with the least amount of light pollution to have been certified.”

The article notes the observatory’s double purpose, which on the one hand “aims to bring families, amateur photographers, schools and people interested in nature and technology in general closer to the world of astronomy”, and on the other “aims to help professionals and give support to astronomers' scientific research.”
