GAM 28th April on the Observatory in Michelbach/Lower Austria

The forecast predicted awesome weather to come, which is why 24 members with 17 telescopes stood prepared for our visitors. In the afternoon we welcomed around 40 children to our Antares Kids event. Enthusiastically the children experimented and crafted models, collected “meteorites” and launched air rockets and “comets”. Meanwhile their parents enjoyed coffee and cake at our Astro-Buffet and observing the sun in white light and H-Alpha.

Light pollution soundbites

18 months ago, I started making my "Eyes on the Sky" night sky videos for beginning / intermediate amateur astronomers to help them find things in the night sky under light polluted conditions. I always try to include naked eye, binocular and telescopic objects in every video. My goal has always been to highlight the problem of light pollution in some way in every video, and by expanding the audience of those who can see things in the sky - even from cities - I hope to have an impact on reducing light pollution. The problem has always been, "How... Read More...

Mês Mundial da Astronomia – “Titã, uma Lua parecida com a Terra” - Lyrids Watch no OAPB

No dia 21 de Abril, o Observatório Astronómico de Gaia (OAPB) voltou a promover mais uma rubrica do Mês Mundial da Astronomia 2012, desta vez foi dedicado à maior Lua de Saturno,Titã, a única com uma espessa atmosfera no nosso sistema solar, cuja composição se assemelha à atmosfera primordial quando a vida despontava na Terra. O dia era propicio também à observação de estrelas cadentes da chuva de meteoros, as Liridas, mas não foi visualizada nenhuma, talvez devido à poluição luminosa e devido à neblina e algumas nuvens que incomodavam a observação. No final foi possível a observação de Saturno... Read More...
