Report

Yesterday evening hundreds of visitors could catch a glimpse through our telescopes set up at the main square of Linz (the hometown of the famous astronomer Johannes Kepler from 1612-1626). For most of them it was the first time look through a telescope for their life. Getting in contact by this way we could tell much about astronomy, about AWB and our local astronomical society (LAG) and observatory. I am sure we could enthuse many of them with astronomy. The first time sight of Jupiter and his moons and the look at the surface of the moon cluttered with craters are always a good start to get in touch with practical astronomy. So summary we can say this event was a big success !
