‘One Starry Night:’ Meet EUr astronomers

What lies beneath the skies? This will be answered during the “One Starry Night: Meet EUr Astronomers,” an event with astronomers to be held by the EU Delegation to the Philippines at Skypark, Fifth Level SM Aura in Bonifacio Global City on June 10, from 6 to 9 p.m.

Among the astronomy experts are EU Delegation’s Giovanni Seritella, Prof. Jun Cajigal of the Philippine Astronomical Society, and Coleen Santos and Christopher Lu of the Manila Street Astronomers.

Telescopes and other gadgets plus an interesting interaction with astronomers shall await the participants who will get educated about stars, and be mesmerized as they gaze at the stars and the moon.

This event is being presented as part of Viva Europa 2019, an initiative of the EU Delegation to the Philippines, and SM in partnership with the Manila Street Astronomers and the Philippine Astronomical Society. Admission is free.

The title of the event is based on “The Starry Night,”   one of the popular works of Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh. It was painted in June 1889 and shows the view from the east-facing window of his room at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.

This stargazing event was inspired from the Copernicus Programme of the European Commission.

Copernicus is the European system for monitoring the Earth. The development of the observation infrastructure is performed under the aegis of the European Space Agency for the space component, and by the European Environment Agency and EU countries for the in situ component.

The program was presented to Philippine interlocutors in a national conference in March 2019.
