Culmination of MO 150th Anniversary celebration

Manila Observatory (MO) culminated its 150th year anniversary celebration with a mass presided by Fr. Jose Ramon Villarin, SJ last September 26, 2016. Fr. Villarin thanked Ms. Antonia Yulo Loyzaga for her nine years of service as Executive Director from 2007 to 2016, her outstanding leadership: that has brought the Manila Observatory international recognition as an institution in the frontiers of disaster science and risk reduction, and for the successful series of scientific symposiums, meetings and exhibits during MO’s sesquicentennial. Manila Observatory continues its mission of service, together with its partners, as it ventures to the scientific peripheries for the community.

Videos of the exhibits highlighting the three phases of the Manila Observatory timeline can be viewed in these links:
  • DISCOVERIES (1865-1945)
  • TRANSITIONS (1946-1990)
  • FRONTIERS (1991-present)
