This paper analyzes the dialogue between astronomical experts and non-experts in Chilean magazines during the first decades of the 20th Century. We propose that in the context of astronomical institutionalization in Chile, the circulation of this knowledge intensifies in this period between 1900 and 1920, generating an interesting exchange in the pages of this type of journal. This article exposes and examines the particularities of the interactions between astronomers and their audiences in the leading Chilean magazines of the period, concluding that this relationship is in itself a process of scientific knowledge production.
