Trailer: Global Astronomy Month 2012
Saturday, April 13th 2013, starting 3 pm
Guided Tour, Lecture, Sun Observation
Topics: spring constellations, moon, Jupiter and Saturn No prior registration is necessary for this event For the 13th time there will be an open house event at our observatory. That day many members of the Antares Society are available for guided tours and explanations of the night sky. If the weather is fine, there is a large crowd of visitors to be expected. But also for us the open house event, which takes place during the Global Astronomiy Month 2013 (GAM), presents a beautiful experience.
- 3 pm to 6 pm: guided tours, observation of the sun and lectures covering the topic “Glimpses of the Universe”
- 4 pm to 6 pm: Antares-KIDS: a special program for children with games and craftworks related astronomy and space travel
- 8 pm to midnight: Observation of the night sky using the observatory scopes.
Some of our members devote themselves to the topic of radio astronomy with a lot of energy and enthusiasm. Pulsars, quasar, black holes, the cosmic microwave background and many more discoveries have been made in that area. Therefore we want to familiarize our visitor with that topic as well. On May 1st 2009 our Radio telescope was commissioned.
More and more people interested in astronomy don’t want to settle only for observation of the night sky, but also want to do some imaging. We offer the possibility to get to know the world of astrophotography to our visitors.
Central Topic – Our Sun
Complementing our sun observation tour we will give a special lecture covering “The Sun”
Sodas, coffee, sweets and sandwiches will be available as well

First examines what it's all there is
Then experimented diligently
The greatest fun, the children in air missiles to shoot at the moon and run around
- more children's pictures
- more shots to the Day observation
During the evening one can already observe some
It was a great, starry night
- more shots to the night observation
