13 June: Long Night of Sciences

Great Refractor on Telegrafenberg.

On this rare occasion the Einstein Tower opened for visitors. The interior oft the building could be visited during guided tours. Guests learned about the physics of our Sun from AIP scientists.

In the Great Refractor we offered talks about astronomy as well as music and hands-on science for children.

As a highlight we observed the night sky with the world´s fourth largest refracting telescope.
