In this last quarter of 2022, special events arise and those magical moments that are about to occur cannot be missed.

Recently a study called "Yearbook of the Astronomical Observatory 2022" revealed that UNESCO recognized the Villanueva Building of the Observatory, which is one of the constructions of Spanish neoclassical architecture. However, the building is not just a museum, it is a facility where they make astronomical observations and use radio telescopes. The Observatory strives to research the origin and evolution of stars and galaxies, as well as retains its spirit with a future full of scientific projects.

María J. Sánchez Ramos, Editor of the National Astronomical Observatory, together with the contribution of José Antonio Bolonio, Technical Specialist in Cartographic Reproduction show more color than ever the expository clarity. In addition, the publication of articles on beautiful science is included.

On the other hand, Rafael Bachiller, Director of the National Astronomical Observatory, showed in the analyses several events in the last quarter of 2022 and The Woman Post encourages you to be part of them.
