In the evening, Miguel Ortueta from Rural Astronomy will accompany us and give us a talk about the spring sky. Using his telescope he will guide us through the typical winter constellations that will still be visible: Orion, Can Mayor or Gemini and those typical of spring: Leo, with its striking inverted question mark ending in the star Regulus; Virgo, with the shiny Spike star.
