As every year, the Millennium Institute of Astrophysics was part of the Science and Technology Fair organized by Par Explora RM Sur Oriente during October 8th and 9th. In this opportunity, MAS installed a stand dedicated to The Sun, where it had two telescopes to observe the most important star of our Solar System.

Although, the clouds seemed to came to stay that day, hundreds of people waited for the Sun to be finally amazed with this observation activity and also with the chance to talk to MAS astronomers at the fair: Álvaro Rojas Arriagada, Carol Rojas, Paul Leyton, Silvio Varela and Tracy Catalán, plus with the help of Katherine Henríquez, from the UNAB’s undergraduate program, and Claudia González, former student of UMCE’s Pedagogy in Science Teaching.
