Santiago, Chile

The Santiago, Chile satellite is on hiatus until further notice.

AoT Chile


Did you know that Chile is one of the best countries in the world for Astronomy?

Having some of the clearest skies on the planet, alongside some of the world’s largest, most powerful and most productive telescopes, makes Chile a unique and inspiring country to study the Universe around us.

Come along to our events to find out more! Astronomy on Tap Chile is held (more or less) on the last Tuesday of every month at The Shamrock in Providencia, Santiago from 20:30, and is hosted by Dr. Amy Tyndall

Each free event consists of three fun, engaging presentations on astronomical topics ranging from missions to Mars, to an insider’s view into Chile’s major astronomical telescopes. The talks are all in English and are aimed at non-scientists, with the aim of sharing with the general population the incredible achievements going on outside their front door.

The speakers all come from the European Southern Observatory (ESO), with plans to get other local institutes involved.

Each talk is interspersed with silly (yet educational!) games to test and reward your new-found knowledge, with super ESO goodies up for grabs as prizes. There is always lots of time to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other astronomers who inevitably tag along for the beer.

  1. I would be interested in attending the talks. Is it just turn up or is it a reservation required. Thanks, Kenneth

    • Reservations are optional for most of the events (we like to have a headcount, but we try not to turn anyone away at the door).

    • Hi Kenneth!

      If you are asking about Santiago AoT specifically, no reservation is required to attend our events – just turn up and bring your friends! However, it is only a very small pub so you may want to reserve a seat (rather than event attendance) in advance by contacting The Shamrock directly to be sure.
