Under One Sky: Astronomy around the World | Guatemala

Guatemala is a country located in Central America, known for its cultural diversity and its legacy of ancient cultures and astronomy. Several astronomical clubs and some universities have different astronomical outreach activities annually in different parts of the country. These activities include observations, workshops, astrophotography camps and dedicated talks to general audience. This video presents a photographic record of some of these activities.

This video is part of the IAU100 series Under One Sky: Astronomy around the World, which provides a glimpse into the diverse worldwide astronomical community. Each video is presented through the eyes of the IAU National Outreach Coordinators, with every chapter we will learn about the history of astronomy, the country’s current research efforts in space science, and how astronomy is celebrated in this region,  with firsthand comments from astronomers and insight into the activities developed during the IAU100 celebrations throughout 2019.

Join us in celebrating an astronomical journey Under One Sky.
