“Planets through different eyes”: A joint Athens-Santander night (VIDEO)

AHEAD2020 in collaboration with the Institute for Astronomy, Astrophysics, Space Applications
and Remote Sensing of the National Observatory of Athens (NOA) in Greece and the Institute of Physics of Cantabria (IFCA), a Joint Centre with the combined effort of two institutions, Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and University of Cantabria (UC), in Spain organized an international astronomical night focusing on the different light emitted by the planets of our own solar system.

In this joint event, we talked about the planets in our solar system and the light emitted by them in the different wavelengths (optical, X-rays). We presented our new #AHEAD2020 video produced by IFCA/CSIC-UC showing the completely different image that planets show in X-rays and explains the main phenomena producing this emission.

Furthermore, we did live observations of the moon and the planets using the optical telescope at NOA with the support of the Penteli’s visitor center of NOA.
