During last week, the Starlight monitor training took place in Gran Canaria island. This was aimed to give some basic knowledge about astronomy to whoever would like to show the Gran Canaria night sky being recognized as Starlight monitor. The Starlight organization is a foundation in which are participating some prestigious organizations such as UNESCO, World Organization of Tourism, International Astronomical Union and IAC (Canarian Institute of Astrophysics).

In February 2018, UNESCO declared part of Gran Canaria as a Starlight Destination in recognition of the high quality of its skies for star gazing.

The astroGC astronomy workshops always take place in the darkest places of the island, included in the Starlight recognition.

astroGC was represented in the monitor training and a temporary certificated has been issued.
