In 1,560 CE, Tycho Brahe, at the time a law student at university, turned to the studies of the mysterious celestial bodies after being deeply impressed by a solar eclipse. He gave his planetary observation records before his death to his assistant, the German mathematician Johannes Kepler, who invented the laws of planetary motion, described with precision the orbits of the planets for the first time, and developed a modern model of the solar system.

Knowledge can lead to more learning and inspiration. For the event, astronomy experts will be invited to explain special astronomical phenomena, and telescopes will be used to introduce the participants to the autumn and winter constellations. Get ready to embark on an intellectual and mesmerizing exploration of the night sky.
