Enjoying the partial lunar eclipse with strangers

Recommended Posts

I'm a little late this time but better late than never:)

Once again me and some other danish amateur astronomers set up our telescopes and shared them with the public. This time it was a special evening since it was a partial lunar eclipse and we also got to witness the ISS cross the night sky.

Hopefully you enjoy the post! I had a really good evening and so did hopefully everyone else.

Yo. I was just wondering, you know if there are any places in Denmark where they arrange star parties? I'm planning a roadtrip with the family next spring or so for a week or two. Would be a shame to leave the scope behind if there are some nice places to set it up and maybe meet some new like minded people!

The Cliffs of Mon are one of the few dark sky parks in Europe, so I imagine getting to them would be something quite special. There's a general tourist information guide to the area, and I guess with a little phone call or email to one of these B&Bs might lead to some fruitful information :thumbright:

I'd agree with @Rob Sellent to visit Møn. I've never been there myself at night though but I've only seen fabulous photos from there.

As for star parties. I only know one real star party but me and a couple of other guys do some public outreaches sometimes when we can. We could definitely try to figure out something if it fits our schedule when you're visiting.

We have a Facebook group where we post if we're doing an outreach and I'd recommend you to ask there:)

Hopefully we can figure something out

Thanks. I had a look at the Facebook group yesterday actually. Just a quick glance. Looks like you guys have something good going on there. When it comes to Møn - my inlaws was visiting that place just a month ago or so. I was envious - I don't get envious usually haha. They went by day, and I was like - why waste it on a day when u can get the perfect night. Dad in law, he's not interested in astronomy or photography for that matter, but he loves to visit places that are a bit special. And this looks like a really special place. He said - REALLY nice place. But man.... so many stairs. :D.

It would be awesome as I said to meet like minded people when going. When it comes to schedule, I doubt I will have any plans set in stone before it's getting close. Right now, the plans are at the following stage:

1. Roadtrip to Denmark sometime next spring. :D

Thanks for the tips! I'll read the information, and hmm.... do u think it would be awkward if I asked to be member of the facebook group even tho I'm not danish? :)

Sorry for slow respond...

Well... you only have to walk down the stairs if you want to get away completely from all light pollution but I think it's faced towards the east which means the southern part of the milky way might not be visible, but hey! I can't say for sure:)
Thank you for your visit! Yes we're really trying our best to get people interested but it's also something we really enjoy doing so it's a win-win. Wouldn't be a problem if you requested to join, the group is after all called "Astronomy for everyone":) If your request gets declined I'll text the admin since we get along quite good and we've been out a couple of times together:)

No need to say sorry for late reply hehe. After all - we have other things to do than staring into a computer screen all the time.

Thanks for the input. I'll be putting Møns klint on my goto list.
