Course offered by Juan Ramón

Available in French, English
Planetarium course for sailors, adapted to all nautical qualifications: PER, PY, CY, PPER and PATRON PESCA ALTURA.
The course will last 3 hours and we will teach it at the Maritime Museum of Barcelona.
We will review aspects related to time such as dimension, calendar and solar analem, necessary for the navigator in order to establish the Vessel's HRB. Once inside the Planetarium we will have the opportunity to study all this in real mode, in addition to other topics such as the observation "with the naked eye" of the summer and winter constellations, the celestial coordinates, the height circle, the obtaining of the latitude by observation of La Polar and the total correction of the Compass, really useful aspects for navigation.
