Sky watching

You can observe the sky even in the city! Nebulae, galaxies, star clusters and a multitude of occasional phenomena can be observed with telescopes. On fine evenings, join us for summer astronomical observations in the park.

On the 27th of July, we will witness an exceptionally spectacular lunar eclipse. It will occur at the moment when the Moon will be at its apogee – the furthest possible point from Earth in its orbit. This will make the phenomenon last really long! It will begin at around 9:30 p.m. and you will be able to observe it for about an hour and forty minutes. Come to the park and watch it with us!

The dome of the planetarium always ensures perfect conditions for observations, even during the day, during rainy evenings or thunderstorms. In the summer, you can come and see a completely new and special live demonstration. Traversing the Milky Way is an enlightening journey through our galaxy. You will find that it shines the brightest near the Sagittarius Constellation, reaches as far as to Cassiopeia in the northern hemisphere and to the Southern Cross Constellation in the southern hemisphere. You will see the distance between the Solar System and the nearest star and learn how to measure cosmic distances. You will also see the Milky Way through the eyes of GAIA, one of the most advanced space probes performing astrometric measurements.

The runtime of the demonstration is about 20 minutes. It is presented before selected film screenings.
