Observation

Every once in a while, I join fellow sky-watchers and amateur astronomers in stargazing sessions geared towards sharing astronomy with the general public. Join me and fellow astronomy enthusiasts in observing various astronomical events. Feel free to browse through previous observations with fellow astronomy enthusiasts.

    • In the Philippines, the rainy season usually starts at around June up to until November each year, thus, we don’t usually schedule stargazing sessions during these times (it will be very cloudy and there will be nothing to see). The local astronomical community is most active during months of clear weather, that is, from December to May each year.

      Kindly visit this page regularly for updates. Thanks!

    • We can arrange one upon request. We do stargazing for free,but we ask the requesting party to shoulder travel expense (for gas), our meals, and provide a place for our equipment.
