Telescoping and stargazing 
The PAGASA Astronomical Observatory is located inside the campus of the University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City, conducts stargazing and telescoping sessions to interested astronomy enthusiasts, upon request. The session can either be conducted at the Observatory or at a specified venue of the requesting party/ individual. Letter of request should reach the Office of the Chief, Space Science and Astronomy Section, at least two weeks earlier than scheduled time, especially those, which will be conducted outside the PAGASA Observatory to allow the processing of necessary documents. The request letter can be addressed to:

Dr. Vicente B. Malano
Acting Administrator, PAGASA
Science Garden
Agham Road, Diliman
Quezon City, Philippines 1100

ATTENTION: Engr. Dario L. dela Cruz
                       Chief, SSAS

During the previous years, the 30-cm reflector-type telescope, which was permanently installed at the Observatory dome, is being used for the telescoping sessions. However, in May 2001, the Japanese Government donated a computer-based 45-cm telescope and was installed at the Observatory. Starting on February 16, 2003, the start of the celebration of the National Astronomy Week, the telescope is open for public use, after a series of adjustments made by the Japanese technicians.

Provided that the sky is clear, visitors can expect to have a glimpse of the famous bright stars like Vega and Sirius during the stargazing session. Planets such as Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Mercury and Mars, including their satellites and the Moon can also be observed.

For residents of the cities of Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu and Legazpi, stargazing and telescoping sessions can also be conducted at the PAGASA regional centers located in their area. One (1) 25-cm telescope in each of the above-mentioned sites are available for use. These telescopes were procured in May 1998 through the Grant-in-aid (GIA) project of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), which is entitled "Promotion of Astronomy".

PRESS RELEASE
24 May 2017

START OF SOUTHWEST MONSOON

Southwesterly windflow has been dominant over the West Philippine Sea for several days now. This is due to the formation of semi-permanent trough over Northern Luzon-Taiwan area and the eastward migration of the North Pacific High Pressure Area which are the prominent indicators of the southwest monsoon onset in the country. 

Likewise, the prevailing weather condition in most parts of Luzon and Visayas particularly the western section is now warm and humid as characterized by occasional to frequent occurrences of afternoon-evening or early morning rainshowers and thunderstorms. These developments signify the approaching onset of rainy season under Type 1 climate covering the western parts of Luzon and Visayas.
