Midsummer Night in the Starry Sky

Tue, 13.06.2023
Horst Thiel
Experiencing the midnight sun at the Arctic Circle - the dream of many people.
In this planetarium show, Horst Thiel, founder and director of the Bad Driburg Observatory, shows how the sun has risen steadily higher from the winter solstice to the longest day of the year, 21 June, and does not set at the Arctic Circle or further north. With his projector, he lets the audience experience in real time how the days get shorter and shorter towards the equator and how the sun cannot be seen at all in Antarctica, but the fascinating southern starry sky presents itself instead. He gives instructions on how to find your way in the summer sky with a star chart and smartphone, and shows impressive midsummer night photos from his travels.
