Telescope


 

Astronomy is the oldest science, part of our natural world and an excellent tool for exploration and wonder. Whether you are a school, an individual or a lodge, we are here to offer you a guided tour of Kenya’s unpolluted equatorial night skies while you enjoy views through our large computerised telescope. We can travel to you or you can visit us at our headquarters in Nairobi. Our Nairobi Star Party has been an exciting event that gathers families and friends around the telescope. We share the views of the Moon, and planets that are available as we give our guests a tour of the sky. We also offer trips out of the city to darker areas not too far from the city. Inviting us with our telescope to your camping trips is a way to experience and enjoy our beautiful skies with an entertaining astronomy team who explain what is in the sky as you enjoy views through the telescope. During the Covid-19 Pandemic we are offering live views through our telescope. Please keep checking for updates to participate in these programs. If you would like us to offer a private session for you and close family and friends remotely via Zoom we can also arrange for that. Feel free to get in touch with us and find out how you can become part of the community and explore the night skies.

 


 

SCHOOLS

We offer school packages tailored specifically for the teachers and students. We visit schools with our telescope either during the day or at night. So far more than two hundred thousand students have looked through our telescope. We believe every single kid should have a chance to look through a telescope at least once in their lifetime. We are also available for virtual tours for your school extra activities especially if you would like us to add an educationals interactive experience with your students during these times of the pandemic. We are also working on a project for schools to use virtual telescopes as they keep exploring the exciting realm of the Cosmos. There are plenty of free online resources that your children can take partin and we are able to provide extra support if needed. You can contact us with ways of colloborating and we will share with you our ideas. We often strive at tailoring our activities to suit your requests as we feel that our producsts and experience are improved only through flexibility and acceptance.

 


TOURISM

Kenya is an excellent astro-tourism destination because her plentiful remote national parks with unpolluted equatorial dark skies. We organise Star Safaris for individual groups or through partnerships with lodges and hotels. Our team of expert astronomers will give you an “edutaining” tour of the African skies as you enjoy views through our telescope. We work with various high end lodges and organise Star Safaris for small groups/families leaving the city for a quick camping trip. Please get in touch with us if you would like to experience a star safari with us. We are also able to provide a virtual star safari for tourists at your lodge, and the best part is that we can also incorporate immersive planetarium software in an event that there are sudden unclear weather.
