Olympos Will Host the Sky and Science Festival 2018
Olympos, one of the most important cities of the Lycian Road, is known as one of the few locations where nature and beach are preserved nicely. This time Olympos attracted the attentions of science lovers with Sky and Science Festival. The decision of the location was made due to Olympos being sufficiently far away from artificial lights, ease of transportation and ease of meeting the basic needs.
This year, the third of the Sky and Science Festival will be held in Olympos on 10-13 August 2018 by Kozmik Anafor, the largest astronomy platform in Turkey. Zafer Emecan, the founder of the platform and an amateur astronomer, stated, they want to show that the science festivals which have been made in developed countries can be organized in Turkey from now on. He also continued ‘Most of the large-scale astronomy festivals which have been held in Turkey since today were not sufficiently efficient due to wrong choice of the location or lack of organization. People tried to observe the sky from locations where the light pollution is high; when they wanted to go out of the cities, the basic needs haven’t been met… Olympos is the perfect location for this event.’
