Senses of Cosmology
A quest for knowledge, the joy of discovery.
Stretch your senses and gaze upon the stars as Six Senses Con Dao invites you to become at one with the universe, with the opening of the first private Astronomical Observatory to be established in the south of Vietnam.
The idea originated from Six Senses’ regular celebrity astronomer Dr Parag Mahajani, an independent consultant and trainer in the fields of Science and Technology, and a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society of London.
With twenty-five years of experience Dr Parag, has been visiting all Six Senses resorts for more than eight years, and in each location delighting guests and hosts with a wealth of information related to the field of astronomy.
At the heart of the project, a Maksutov-Cassegrainian 127mm Telescope, allows guests to view all the celestial highlights of the South Vietnam sky, such as Saturn, Venus, Jupiter and of course our own satellite, the Moon’s surface.
Dr Parag’s recent visit at Six Senses Con Dao was to attend the inauguration of The Observatory together with management from Six Senses and the resort’s owners - Indochina Capital. During his visit, Dr Parag held Evening Slide Shows at By The Market, Astronomical Observations and Talks, Morning Solar Observation Sessions and Exclusive Zodiac Dinners.
Dr Parag will be coming to delight the guests of Six Senses Con Dao with slide-shows, talks and Day & Night time sky observation programs during 13 November to 23 November 2013.
Daily programs will include:
Evening Slide Shows at By the Market will take place from 19:00 to 19:30.
Astronomical Observations and talks will take place every clear night during his visit from 21:00 to 23:00 at a Sense of Cosmology.

Parag will be talking to guests throughout the evening showing how the different dishes relate to the stars and will be combined with Night-Time observations.
