Report

On July 27 2018 we had a public viewing event at our local observatory.

It was a thrilling event, because at the beginning many clouds in southeast blocked the view. But "hope dies last" and the sky cleared more and more.gt20h44

About 1000 people visited our small observatory. Of course we had some portable scopes to offer a view to the moon and the red planet.

Before and in between we could offer Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. Mars was not so pretty because at our latitude he is very low and the seeing is bad. However everybody was happy and the main attraction have been the red twins "Bloodmoon" & Mars.
