Airbnb to offer special stargazing event in Spain
Airbnb hosts in the Canary Islands will offer guests the opportunity to view two astronomical events with the Gran Telescopio Canarias (GTC) in La Palma, Spain. This eight-hour Social Impact Experience on Airbnb will only be available once, for up to six guests on 27 July 2018.
A local astronomy guide and night photography expert Antonio González and chief of scientific operations of GTC Antonio Luis Cabrera will provide insight into the events: Mars at the closest it's been to Earth in 15 years and the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st Century, creating a 'blood moon'. The seats will be bookable on a first come, first served basis at €40 and all proceeds will be donated to the nature conservation NGO WWF Spain.
