Star Light, Star Bright
As far as the current scientific research shows, Earth is the only planet home to civiliziation. But is that really all there is to the universe? The Wilhelm Foerster Observatory and Zeiss Planetarium lets astronomers of all ages and walks of life ponder these questions, gazing up at the night sky and looking through the venerable 100-year- old refracting telescope or the high-tech, computer-controlled Zeiss reflecting telescope. Aside from stargazing, the observatory and planetarium specialize in astronomy education with regular programs and group viewings. Even on cloudy nights, curiosity for the celestial is fostered with the use of multimedia and technology to simulate the movements and phenomena in the sky and space. Munsterdamm 90.
