Our guides arranged for us to use a public observatory near San Pedro for an astronomy tour. Our guide, Jared, was highly knowledgeable about the night skies. He was also knowledgeable about telescopes, which were large (16 and 18 inches in diameter), and gave us a view of planets and stars as we’ve never seen before. The detail on the planets Saturn and Jupiter was remarkable, and the magnification of star clusters and galaxies blew us away. Included in the tour was an astrophotagraphy session, and we posed for a number of pictures with the Chilean night sky.
