After dinner around 20:00 we will begin the stargazing experience, driving even higher, above the clouds. We will watch the sun set with a glass a cava and have the opportunity to take some amazing photos. Once the sun has set we will then head through the forest where we will reach around 2000 meters above sea lever, experiencing total darkness and observe the majestic milky way.
Our Dark Skies Tenerife astronomer will point out all of the visible planets and star constellations with a laser pointer. You will also get the chance to view the planets through the professional telescopes and also take a look into deep space. View things not visible to the naked eye. We end the excursion around 22:00 – 22:30 and head back down to Vilaflor
