Welcome to the Space and Nature Aruba Website

The Space and Nature Aruba (SNA) is a non-profit group based on the Caribbean island Aruba located a few miles North of the coast of Venezuela. The SNA group is affiliated with Universe Awareness (UNAWE) which is an organization endorsed by UNESCO and the International Astronomical Union (IAU).

Our main goal is to bring astronomy and earth science to the public
through education, research and enjoyable public events, and improve the status, understanding and enjoyment of amateur astronomy and earth science.

The NASA/ESA Hubble Telescope has peered across six billion light years of space to resolve extremely faint features of the galaxy cluster Abell 370 that have not been seen before. Imaged here in stunning detail, Abell 370 is part of the Frontier Fields programme which uses massive galaxy clusters to study the mysteries of dark matter and the very early Universe.
