Astronomy evening: Comet Atlas

Saturday, 10/19/2024 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.

Theme on October 19, 2024: Comet Atlas
Comet Atlas was discovered at the beginning of 2023 and has shown a promising brightness trend since its discovery. The comet will be visible in the evening sky from October 10-13 and should then be easily visible to the naked eye. From October 20, the comet can also be observed without disturbing moonlight. Our event will be complemented by explanations of the constellations and of course you can also take a look through the new Gurten Observatory.
