In San Pedro de Atacama (Northern Chile) you can see amazing stars. Things we learned while star gazing:
- Incest was prevalent in England, back when people thought the world was flat.
- There are blue and red stars. Blue stars are hotter. Red stars are jealous.
- There are about 10 falling stars in the San Pedro de Atacama sky, per hour.
- Most stars are actually double or triple stars. The sun is a rarity, being a single star.
- When you’re cold, close your legs. A valuable life lesson, not just to keep you warm …
- The rings around Saturn are ice, and you can see them looking through a telescope in Chile.
- Canadians can be assholes who take flash photographs while stargazing.
- Hot chocolate tastes amazing after -2 degree stargazing. In Chile.
In summary, go stargazing in Northern Chile with an inappropriate Canadian astronomer guide (or through the very amazing Space who have very knowledgeable and hilarious guides).
