Early bird's lunar eclipse
In the morning of Monday, 21st January 2019 you can watch a lunar eclipse, one of the most beautiful spectacles in the sky!
We open as early as 3:30 a.m. - rain or shine. In short lectures we explain eclipses. Around 4:00 a.m. we open our roof terrace for observation. Experience for yourself how the moon darkens in the early morning of January 21st and finally shines like a copper-red disk in the sky from 5.41 o'clock on. The spectacle can be observed particularly well until 6:43 in our telescopes. At dawn the moon slowly emerges from the earth's shadow. In case of bad weather we plan to transmit livestreams from other places over the Internet.
