9. Sep. 2005: Astronomy Day at the BIS

Jean-Luc Dighaye

On Friday 09 September 2005, the EurAstro team was invited to the Bavarian International School by Ms. Claudia Freitas, of the Science Department, for presenting a slide show comprising several themes, an overview of computer astronomy and an introduction to amateur telescopes. The event took place between 19:00 and 23:00 - without observations, due to poor weather.

We were delighted by the warm welcome of the staff, and the way they took care of every detail. Although we came with high expectations, given the reputation of the BIS, regarding the level of professionalism of the staff and the motivation of the audience, we were amazed by the exquisite atmosphere surrounding the whole event.
