Northern Vietnam’s biggest observatory in photos

PANO The Hoa Lac Observatory, located in the Hoa Lac Hi-tech Park in Thach That district, about 30km from Hanoi downtown, is known as the biggest observatory in Northern Vietnam.

The construction began in 2015, and the observatory is scheduled to start operation in the second quarter of 2019. It consists of modern telescopes and a 100-seat cosmic projection screening space-shaped house.

Images and films are projected on the dome by a high-resolution 6-projector system that produces 3D effects, providing a true-to-life experience of space and stars.

The projection screening house is also a tool providing understanding and knowledge of astronomy, using visual images to explain the motion of celestial objects and other interesting astronomical phenomena.

PANO would like to introduce several images of the Hoa Lac Observatory.
