Hi!!! Here in Brazil many groups, from 7 Brazilian States participated in 4th ISAN. Our group organized two events. One in our city, Campos dos Goytacazes and other in São Fidélis (a city near us).

In the begin of the afternoon I gave an interview about 4th ISAN in the most important TV News of our region. The Sky was clear with few clouds!!! :) We had in Campos dos Goytacazes aproximately 500 people looking to the Sky during the event we organized in the main public square of the city. We began the night observing the Moon and Mars. Later we observed Mars and Saturn. Was a great success!!!

We had a good time during the two nights of ISAN here in Sao Luis. The sky was clear and the weather was great. More than 350 people could see the moon, Mars and Saturn through our telescopes. Most of them, did it for the first time. Take a look at the comments below:

Good, the moon looks like a piece of cheese! - Josana Santos, Student.
Very good! Excellent job - Conceição Silva, Teacher.
I would stay all the the night here looking at the moon - Ana Naliate, Lawyer.
