Telescope record in Mexico - level 2

Almost 3000 people in Mexico were watching the sky. They broke a record for the most number of people looking through a telescope at the same location.

The exact number of the people is 2978. They were looking at the Moon in Mexico City.

It was a family event. People spent time together. Many people in Mexico like astronomy. There are many workshops and conferences about astronomy in Mexico every summer.

Interesting words: telescope (tube which makes distant things look big), astronomy (science about space), workshop (meeting at which people learn and improve their skills).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
