Each of us is always happy to admire the stars, and will not miss a moment to lift our heads and look at the clear sky strewn with bright stars. Humanity has always been attracted to the unknown, so what about the cosmos, this is perhaps the most unexplored thing that can be. Going to the planetarium is always good, and for some it is a favorite activity. But what if we offer you to get not to the entertainment planetarium, but to the real scientific observatory of strategic purpose! Tempting, isn't it?

One of the three observatories under the ownership of the Fesenkov Institute, namely the one located on the Kamensky Plateau, kindly opens its doors for space lovers and tourists! The observatory is located at a h of one and a half thousand meters above sea level and has a favorable view for the study of space and space objects. From this observatory, they observe and study geostationary satellites, planets, stars, and even whole galaxies since 1947.

One of the main details visiting observatory is the weather. The sky should be clean and open to see the Moon or Mars cover, rings of Jupiter.
