D.F. Sarmiento,10/24/1871 

“A telescope that explores the skies, resembles an artillery machine directed against human ignorance, and has its part in the conquest of new and great truths, which will serve for the moral, intellectual and physical advancement of the human race.”

B. Gould, 10/24/1871

The meeting will be held virtually and free of charge from October 25 to 29, 2021 and will coincide with the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Argentine National Observatory, the first scientific institution of our country.
