Long Night of the Sciences

At the historic site in the Einstein Tower, visitors can explore the modern solar research from Potsdam. The Great Refractor opens its doors as well: in lectures you can learn more about distant exoplanets or cool neighbor stars, make star maps and - in suitable weather - the night sky over Potsdam through the telescope. Please note that most of the talks will be held in German.
