Built in 2014 with a total investment of nearly 60 billion VND, now the first observatory of Vietnam is completed and ready to be put into operation. Recently, Khanh Hoa province has put Nha Trang Observatory to the itinerary of Nha Trang tours. This place will be an interesting destination for those who love exploring the space.
The observatory was built on Hon Chong Island and it will surely be included in almost all Nha Trang tours to this small islet. The observatory has a cylinder shape with 5 floors and semi-spherical domes. On the top floor lies a 0.5m-diameter astronomical telescope designed and produced by Marcon, a famous Italian company. The telescope is equipped with cameras and high-resolution spectrum analyzers that allow visitors to observe variable stars.
Besides, this observatory also has a 60-seat projection room designed in a cosmic shape like a movie theatre, visually providing visitors with astronomic knowledge and celestial changes in the sky through visual effects in a 200m2 showroom. With these modern equipments, visitors will surely bring home amazing experience of stunning Nha Trang tours around the space.
Together with Nha Trang, the second observatory is being constructed at Hoa Lac Hi-Tech Park, Hanoi, scheduled to start operations in this 2018.
