Hotel Ranga has invested in a wonderful addition to their hotel; An Astronomical Observatory !
Whilst Hotel Ranga is already on its own in a rural area away from artificial light they have built the observatory, with its roll back roof, about 150 m away from the main hotel so as to minimise any light interference from the hotels lights.
With these high magnification telescopes you can see amazing detail on Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and even some details on Mars. Even a glimpse of the far off Uranus and Neptune are possible !
During daylight hours a solar telescope with a white light filter can be used for solar observing. You will have a fantastic view of the Sun and can observe sunspots in great detail and activity such as prominences and filaments which are the flares which are the start of Northern Lights Activity.
It can take up to 30 people and has 2 high quality 11 inch computerised telescopes. We are told it is the most advanced observatory in Iceland !
So now even your Northern Lights trip just got even better!
