El Molino Astronomical Viewpoint

INFORMATION

  • Latitude: 28º 49′ 54,5″ N
  • Lenght: 17º 48′ 31,0″ W
  • Altitude: 603,60 m.
  • Municipality: Barlovento

This viewpoint is located just outside the main population centre of Barlovento, in a relatively dark place with little light pollution, which makes it suitable for astronomical outreach. The panels located there tell of the Pole Star, the North and the whole mythology surrounding this cardinal point. This town was the first to adapt its street lights to the Sky Law. The viewpoint has a signpost pointing to Polaris, and a wheel-planisphere that helps locate the circumpolar constellations: the Dipper and Cassiopeia
