Ruslan Komayev of the Russian "Lavochkin" Space Industries, said that in 2020 a space observatory will be opened at the site of an old mosque in the Russian city of Vladikavkaz.

The observatory, is a scientific and educational center, and is used to illustrate the celestial sphere with stars, planets, satellites, comets and meteors, in which the eclipse of the sun and moon is studied and monitored, and watching various planets such as Mars and Venus.

Comayev, the owner of the idea and the initiator of its implementation, added: "The work took place over two years, as the site has a historical value and therefore a lot of work was done manually. The process of preparing documents took a long time and we can now say that the opening is scheduled for next January."

The mosque’s construction dates back to the 1870s, and during the Soviet era the building was converted into a star study hall, but was closed in 1992.

Komayev emphasized that during the restoration process, the historical appearance of the building was preserved.
