Astronomy evening

Saturday, 10/28/2023 6:00 PM
By means of clear explanations, participants learn about the impressive properties of the solar system and the universe. Professionals from the Astroevents association explain the astronomical concepts with the help of easy-to-understand models. In the practical part, interesting information is provided about the constellations, while the stars and planets can be observed through several professional telescopes.

Topic on Saturday 28 October: Partial Lunar Eclipse
One of the few visible lunar eclipses of this decade will occur in the evening. Although the lunar eclipse will only be partial, it will nevertheless offer a great spectacle in which 10% of the moon will be in the Earth's shadow. The two planets Jupiter and Saturn will round off the spectacle. At the event, you will learn why the moon is not completely dark during a total lunar eclipse and you will also hear interesting facts about the planets.
