It’s the year of monthly memory dumps—and if collecting first-time moments is your priority for October, look no further than what your childhood dream most likely tells you: explore space.
Well, not the sandwich-eating astronaut levels, though. There are still cool things we can do while staying on Earth, as revealed by the upcoming events by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST)’s PAGASA, just in time for World Space Week.
Mark Oct. 10 as your day, space fans—especially those in Quezon City. There are planetarium shows you can catch from 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. with themes “From Earth to the Universe” and “The Sky Tonight” at the PAGASA Planetarium. According to PAGASA on Facebook, this event will let viewers go deep into the “beauty of the universe” and “mysteries of space.”
Meanwhile at the PAGASA Astronomical Observatory in University of the Philippines Diliman, there are telescoping and stargazing sessions from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Let’s just keep our fingers crossed that the sky’s condition aligns with it. “This is an incredible opportunity to connect with fellow space enthusiasts, learn from experts, and experience the magic of the cosmos up close,” the local agency said.
By the way, these are all free—so make sure to hit up a friend who’d love to romanticize space as much as you do.
