Many bookings for the night observations have been made in the National Astronomical Observatory on the Rozhen Peak. The observatory is the biggest in the South-Eastern Europe. If the weather is not cloudy, every person keen on astronomy will be given the chance to observe the phenomenon for an hour, after 10 p.m. against a ticket of 5 levs. The climax of the phenomenon falls on August 27 and 28. The smaller telescope has already been fixed under the dome of the observatory. The biggest telescope available in the observatory is 2 meters in diameter. It has a magnification of 250 times, but only professional astronomers will be allowed to use it.
