Join us when we observe the Andromeda galaxy
Wednesday the 22. of JANUAry between 18:00-19:45
We will place three of our large telescopes outside Planetarium and look closer at our neighboring galaxy the Andromeda Galaxy.
UPDATE 22 th of january: Tonight the sky will be clear – so drop by Planetarium and get the opportunity to get af closer look at the Andromeda Galaxy.
The Andromeda Galaxy is, like our own galaxy, the Milky Way, a spiral galaxy. The Andromeda galaxy is 2.5 million lights away and can be glimpsed with the naked eye on a dark night, but is clearly visible through the telescope.
Even with a small pair of binoculars, Andromeda is an impressive sight, and when photographed through the large telescopes, its majestic spiral arms, gas clouds and dust bands are clearly visible.
The event takes place between 18:00 and 19:45 and it is free to join.
Note: As observations of the Andromeda galaxy are weather dependent, we ask everyone interested, keep an eye on this page for days on the event itself.
Around noon we will update you if there is any cloud free in favor of our telescopes in use.
