Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 10 December 2013

The Six Senses Con Dao in Vietnam has opened a private Astronomical Observatory.

The idea behind this exciting project originated from Six Senses regular celebrity astronomer Dr Parag Mahajani, an independent consultant and trainer in the fields of Science and Technology, and a fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society of London.

With 25 years of experience, Dr Parag, has been visiting Six Senses resorts for more almost a decade, and in each location he delights guests and hosts with a wealth of information related to the field of astronomy.

At the heart of the project, a Maksutov-Cassegrainian 127mm telescope allows guests to view celestial highlights of the South Vietnam sky such as Saturn, Venus, Jupiter and of course our own satellite, the Moons surface.

Up to 30 guests can participate at each evening session.

The activity is available to all resort guests twice a week from 9pm to 10:30pm on a complimentary basis. There is a nominal fee for private sessions.

Dr Parag visits Six Senses Con Dao several times per year and when he is not on property, the resorts Excursions Director Georges F. Erhard conducts the sessions.

During Dr Parags visits he hosts evening slide shows at By The Market, talks on astronomical observations, morning solar observation sessions and exclusive zodiac dinners.

Dr Parag also conducts similar programmes at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay where guests can enjoy cocktails while stargazing.
