About this event

Look up at night. How many stars can you count? Surely, it’s not many. How about you now try on a remote mountaintop under clear skies and the aid of a gigantic telescope? In this talk we will review the elements that affect astronomical viewing and their impact on the selection of sites to build modern telescopes.
