How do I get to know the starry sky?

The winter sky

Saturday, 14.12. – Sunday, 15.12.

In winter, the stars radiate with glorious clarity. Orion, Gemini, Taurus and Carter stand magnificently high in the sky. The brightest stars of these form the basis for the Winter Hexagon, which we use to orient ourselves to explore the beauty of the winter sky, both on our large star chart and in clear weather also directly in the open air. Early risers have the chance to discover Mercury and Mars in the morning sky.
