EurAstro and the 100 Hours of Astronomy in Munich
Part 1: EPO Skybar
The 100HA events organised by EurAstro and the EPO Astro Club Munich
started with solar observations on the Skybar terrace on 02 April 2009
The Sun was nearly featureless. The day after, though, a solar
prominence was seen.
The main activity took place on 02 April starting 17:15. A number of
telescopes were set up across the Skybar terrace.
The Cosmic Diary crew was there! See their report here.
Every child was given a Galileo Scope. They learned how to assemble it,
use its accessories, and observe the Moon.
A small but capable reflector called the FirstScope was presented, and
tested by the audience.
Observations included a scenic transit of the International Space
Station in front of the Moon, Saturn and its satellites Titan and Rhea,
the occultation of a star (SAO 79065) by the Moon, and a wide field view
of the Pleiades.
