Report

On 11th of June 2016 a new solar observatory  was opened. The Austrian AWB-affiliate ANTARES held a big opening ceremony. I had the big pleasure to be one of the guests officially representing AWB-Austria. ANTARES is a very vivid and active astronomical association in Lower Austria doing any kind of public outreach.

In the background another big radio-dish. ANTARES is doing several kinds of Radio-Astronomy.

There is only one thing left to say: All the best wishes to the members of ANTARES, congratulation to the great work they  have already done and are still doing and all the best for the future of the observatory.

Best regards

Joe
