LUMINISC(I)ENCE

ASTROTOOKING? Look at the footer …

No, our name has not changed: astrotourism is “synonym” of Astrotouristing.

But we have incorporated a tool to respond to the stargazing and touristic demand: the BOOKING search engine.

 

Do the search from our website and contribute to the astronomical dissemination. Clicking on the violet button SEARCH will take you to the conventional web of BOOKING but, calm down, we will not know anything about your personal data or those of your reservation.

 

You know that we actively participate, as much as we can, of initiatives linked to the sustainability of the environment and of humans, that we always insist that we are part of it. In our stamps and other posts you have the proof but if we can make synergy and certain “pedagogy” through it, moreover, redirecting income from this source to our purposes of knowledge divulgation, ecological awareness and social transformation through entrepreneurship …

Our maxim is the Economy of the Common Good. And what is it? …

Other type of maps: night world maps

A map of the world (in Latin Mappa Mundi) is a cartographic representation of the entire surface of the Earth in a spherical or flat form; among the latter we find even the celestial planispheres with the visible sky -and constellations interpreted culturally- that varies according to the latitude of the Earth from which its projection is situated, but we will already talk about them …

Returning to the most usual ones, it should be noted that they can be terrestrial or maritime, and frequently thematic: physical (geographical, geological, topographic), political (borders) or social (made with indicator data, which gives them very different aspects). It is true that sometimes they combine different variables in the representation and, although they are apparently objective they do not get rid of having an ideological load on the scales used … But then, what is a nocturnal world map? One that appears only black? Hopefully. It is at least black and white, but that white becomes yellowish because at night you know what happens: many lights turn on …

 

 

And that’s what we’re going to tell you in this post, of a world map that collects all that light pollution that is so unecological in terms of energy consumption and in so far as it affects the diversity of the environment including human health, apart from hindering astronomical observations, and also with citizen collaboration. Collaboration consisting of several tasks. Are you interested in participating?

IS THE 16TH OF MAY THE DAY WITH THE MOST LIGHT OF THE YEAR?

No, we know that not, it happens when the summer solstice of each hemisphere takes place and the sun reaches its maximum height at noon; then corresponds to the longest day of the year. But, why do we ask this question? It has his trap.

It is the International Day of Light … and its applications in multiple fields: science, optics, culture and daily life.

And Astronomy is light – the measures based on its speed in the universe, as radiation that makes life possible, as a marker of biological cycles and in the capture through telescopes and photographic objectives – we have to do echo your commemoration and share with you all the information that UNESCO facilitates for your follow-up: www.lightday.org

 

 

ANOTHER (astro) TOURISM IS POSSIBLE: Fash (& Tourism) Rev

 

A quote used by the Fashion Revolution movement that makes a lot of sense in https://astrotouristing.com/en/darkiscoming-enter-textile-crowdfunding-astrotouristing/

 

We can and should dedicate a small section to a topic that tourism doesn´t seem to be associated to or we do not usually associate with it, although it is intimately related through one of its manifestations: the souvenir. I am referring to the textile sector.

#DARKISCOMING ENTER OUR TEXTILE CROWDFUNDING!

You’ve probably noticed (and hopefully you’ll experience it too!) that ASTROTOURISTING is an [inter]cultural-scientific ecotourism project that needs people like you, who has fun while learning, pledges against light pollution and wants to foster job creation and sustainable fashion.

In our First Edition design of the #bestarfriendly t-shirt, we’ve prioritized a message that matches both the goals of ASTROTOURISTING at an universal level and surely yours or those of the person receiving the shirt as a gift. That’s why it’s made from a more sustainable textile made from organic cotton and inks free of noxious elements. It also glows in the dark!
