Our event takes place in any weather. Since the event takes place in a natural barn, there is no heating there. Please bring warm clothes in cold weather!
Depending on weather and astronomical conditions, an individual program is always created from the following possibilities:
How far away is the nearest star? How long does a journey to the moon take? You can learn interesting facts about astronomy and space travel in the rustic atmosphere of a historic farm barn in Mosberg-Richweiler. The main attraction is the Apollo 13 space capsule, which was built for the film launch of the Hollywood blockbuster of the same name with Tom Hanks. At our “Space Academy” children and adults can take a seat in the cockpit of the Apollo 13 space capsule and experience a unique experience of the journey to the moon. We show 3D models of our heavenly bodies and can imagine how big they are.
Under a clear sky: Astronomical observation with a telescope. We explore our sun with a special telescope, as well as the moon on a bright day and learn many news about our target objects.
Our goal is to provide basic knowledge for prospective “space experts” in an interactive and playful way. A real “SpaceMan” (or “SpaceWoman”) must of course be familiar with our planetary system and the starry sky, so that he does not get lost. Therefore we first show small videos about our planetary system so that we can orientate ourselves in space. So that we do not underestimate the huge distances between the planets, we have a true-to-scale planetary path and planetary models with us. During a space mission we can collide with many small and large (very dangerous!) boulders in space. We bring real shooting stars (meteorites) with us so that we get to know them in time.
A space expert must of course also know how a rocket works. That is why we also have the possibility to shoot a rocket up in the outer area.
For friends of beautiful astrophotos we have an exhibition with pictures of the famous astrophotographer Sebastian Voltmer.
You want to know how the sky looked like on your birthday? Where are the planets tonight? What was the famous “Star of Bethlehem”? Who can recognize the most beautiful constellations? Who knows how to find the points of the compass at night when you get lost? We have a planetarium program to find this out even when the sky is overcast.
In addition, for the larger guests, a selection of interesting videos with scenes of impressive events in the sky (e.g. interviews with astronauts, solar and lunar eclipses, rotation of the starry sky, zoom into the birthplaces of stars and planets, northern lights, and much more).
New technical developments or attractions that enrich our offer are automatically added to the program by us.
