The passage of time and the absence of a public commitment to preserve its legacy seem to condemn to oblivion one of the most relevant figures in Spanish astronomy. Josep Comas Solà, born in Barcelona in the second half of the 19th century, is responsible for some of the most striking celestial discoveries of his time.

Álvaro Soto's documentary covers the life and work of this extraordinary astronomer with the help of the professors of the History of Science, Antoni Roca-Rosell and Pedro Ruiz-Castell. The current director of the Observatori Fabra and Professor of Quantum Physics and Astrophysics, Jorge Núñez, also participated. The program also analyzes its contributions to the development of seismology with the help of Josep Batlló, specialist in that field of the Institut Cartogràfic i Geològic de Catalunya. The scientific communicator Bibiana Bonmatí and the former presidents of the astronomical groups Aster, Ricard Martínez, and de Sabadell, Josep Maria Oliver, explore their facet of disseminating the celestial observation. The most intimate portrait of the character is drawn by his relative Pau Senra and Núria Guille, friend of the Comas Solà environment.
