English Group : The Observatorium

I took the Monday group to an open evening at the Observatorium in Stockholm.

We went by bus and train, found our way fairly easily, climbed the steep and muddy hill up to the top, and found ourselves at the Observatorium.

A winding wooden staircase to the top. The chance to see and use a real telescope (50 times stronger than a normal one!), to see how they use co-ordinates to point the telescope at the correct place in the sky, and to see how the roof of the Observatorium turns and opens. 

Unfortunately it was very cloudy – but at one point we were able to see the moon – and then it was so clear, we could actually see the craters on the moon! Actually truly incredible!    

I just took the one photo – I didn’t want to be clicking and flashing around in the Observatorium too much! 😂

A fabulous evening!
