Eclipse Calculator 2.0 is an Android app to compute and simulate astronomical events. A tool for astronomy lovers that allows to know in a simple way the general and local circumstances for solar and lunar eclipses and planetary transits. Which futur eclipses will be visible from my location? And from the antipodes? What they will be like? How long will they last? And in the past, how many eclipses have there been? All these and many other questions about both, eclipses and planetary transits, are answered with this tool.

This exhibition explains how do we measure the distances to the celestial bodies at different distance regimes (from nearby stars to far-away galaxies). From the determination of the Earth size and the Moon distance with trigonometrical methods to the use of the Hubble constant to get the distance to the farthest gallaxies, the exhibition shows the methods used by the astronomers throughout the History to know the cosmic distances. It is available in Catalan.
