An expert will give a short introduction to astronomy and the history of the observatory.
If the night is clear we will gaze at starts and planets through the observatory's telescopes. We will explore the landscape of the moon, gaze into the Andromeda galaxy, spot a planet or two and maybe find a binary star.
Note: Bring warm clothes and good shoes, the observatory can get cold and if we can find a low planet or constellation we may go outside.
If the night is cloudy which unfortunately is out of our control) our guide will show us around the observatory, tell us about its history, and guide us through the history of astronomy and the galaxy itself.
Ole Rømer was a Danish astronomer from Aarhus who in 1676 made the first quantative measurements of the speed of light. The observatory was made in his honour.
