The Ebro Observatory is a research Institute founded by the Society of Jesus in 1904 to study the Sun-Earth relationships. It is a nonprofit Foundation associated with the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) since its inception. It has continuously maintained collaboration with the National Meteorological Institute (INM) since 1920. Recently, it has started collaboration with other institutions, like the National Technical Aerospace Institute and the Cartographic Institute of Catalonia.

Reportably… unfortunately, all of the early pioneers of this project went blind withing two days
