• Escursione al Monte Lema


Excursion at Monte Lema - Lunar Eclipse - 16.07.2019

Experience a thrilling partial eclipse which will obscure two thirds of the moon, and spend a fun evening on top of Monte Lema.

Organised by Monte Lema SA with the participation of the Le Pleiadi Association.

The firmament provides the backdrop for one of nature’s best-known and most eagerly awaited spectacles: a partial eclipse of the moon.

Everything is ready on top of Monte Lema: a fabulous natural balcony far from the light pollution of our cities, a panoramic vantage point for a one-of-a-kind spectacle which can be seen with the naked eye and which doesn’t require any particular know-how.

This is an experience which will surely be unforgettable for Monte Lema’s many friends and supporters who are keen to enjoy an equally memorable evening event.

So we look forward to a great summer night, all of us together in the shadow of the moon, to enjoy local delicacies.
