Description:

With lecture, guided hike to the site where the sky disc was found and sky observation.

For thousands of years, people have watched the sky from the Mittelberg. We take the falling stars of the first half of August as an opportunity to do the same.
7 p.m. Lecture: Beautiful to marvel at - stars and shooting stars over Mittelberg
In the night sky above the Mittelberg, even stars many light years away and the dull shimmering band of the Milky Way seem within reach.

7 p.m. Lecture: Beautiful to marvel at - stars and shooting stars over Mittelberg
In the night sky above the Mittelberg, even stars many light years away and the dull shimmering band of the Milky Way seem close enough to touch. In an entertaining and vivid way, experienced astronomers from the Halle Society for Astronomical Education present the most beautiful stars and phenomena of the night sky. These include red and blue giant stars, fascinating planets, galaxies and the shooting stars of the Perseid meteor stream.

8 pm Guided hike to the site where the sky disc was found on Mittelberg Mountain
On the hike there is information about other archaeological sites as well as the art trail "Between World and Cosmos".

From 10 p.m. Waiting for the shooting stars and sky watching with the telescope
There are useful tips for successful observation of the annually visible tracers.
With the star friends of the society for astronomical education e. V.
