Long Night of the Lunar Eclipse
At Friday, 27th July 2018 a wonderful spectacle is to be seen over Munich: a total lunar eclipse!
We start our programme at 7:00 p.m. - rain or shine (admission from 6:45 on). In short lectures we explain this celestial shadowplay. In case of clear sky, we open our roof terrace around 8.30 p.m. where you can observe the moon through our big telescopes. If clouds cover the sky, we also try to show the eclipse by pictures and video streams over the internet as well as a simulation in our planetarium. There, we also offer shows repeatedly all over the evening.
