The strongest affection and utmost zeal should, I think, promote the studies concerned with the most beautiful objects. This is the discipline that deals with the universe's divine revolutions, the stars' motions, sizes, distances, risings and settings . . . for what is more beautiful than heaven? — Nicolaus Copernicus
We warmly invite all astronomy lovers to the Astronomical Observatory of the Jagiellonian University for "Night under the Stars" on the dates given below.All events begin promptly at 7 pm,unless otherwise noted.
We hope that this will not only generate enthusiasm for science, but also cut the seeming gap between scientists and the public. We believe that it is inherently human to look at the night sky and experience a great sense of awe. The vastness of the universe can make people feel modest and small, but when people begin to understand how it works, it can be the happiest and most satisfying endevaour one can embark on.
Entry is Free
We do however, require all participants to register and agree to our data release. If the form is not displayed, the event is full for the upcoming date. We can accomodate only up-to 40 participants in a meeting due to limited space.
