Hi Astronomers!

As part of the free teacher workshop ASTROEDU - COCHABAMBA event, part of the "Open Astronomy Schools"  of The International Astronomical Union (IAU).

Link of the AstroEdu - Cochabamba:

The following is a Celestial Planisphere of free Design for download and printing, its purpose is to implement a practical class of planisphere assembly.

Its design coordinates are for the city of Cochabamba, Bolivia. It consists of an Assembly Guide and was one of the materials developed and provided by AstroEdu - Cochabamba

merge from ofoct 1

Hopefully this is a first version for the near future with the development of Astronomy & Space Sciences in Bolivia!

    Hello Gabriel Jaimes, Thank you for posting this planisphere for Spanish learners and amateur astronomers. It's really wonderful. Will it mostly work in South America or are their other continents where your planisphere will be accurate?

    Clear skies,

      Hi Jessica!

      The Planisphere will mostly work for a latitude of 17.5 S. If you turn back the inner constellations disk, the planisphere will work for 17.5 N. Moreover, If you would like to adjust it for others latitudes, 45 N or 45S for example, or other ones. We can do it :).
