How do I get to know the starry sky?

The summer sky

Saturday, 06.07. – Sunday, 07.07.

Parallel to the flowers, which we experience in July during the day, we can turn our eyes up to the stars at night. During this time we find in the constellations Adler, Schwan and Leier the summer triangle high in the sky and the winter symbols Scorpio, Libra and Virgo towards the horizon. After practicing with the star map, we can hopefully have a good view of the pictures in the open air and observe the planets Jupiter and Saturn. Early in the morning Venus radiates against us.
