Yuri’s Night Donostia
Yuri’s Night Donostia is the first Yuri’s Night in the Basque city of Donostia-San Sebastian (Gipuzkoa, Spain). The department of Astronomy of Aranzadi Science Society will use the film First Orbit as a way to introduce astronomy to a wide public. Our astronomers will discuss Gagarin’s journey and answer basic questions about the space. Later, the local Funk -Soul band “Funkdamental” will give a concert covering songs related to space trips, while the audience will have the chance to use our telescopes to watch the sky.
