Report

Again this year members of our local astronomical society (LAG - Linzer Astronomische Gemeinschaft) startet the Global Astronomy Month joining to the Global Starparty on Saturday evening 1. April 2017.  Many walkers crossing the main square of Linz stopped at our little GAM-Astronomy-exhibition. We offered to these interested people a look through our telescopes (mainly focused on the moon - we had several clouds) and told them a lot about stargazing and all activities around the globe and about activities at our local observatory. Of course, "One People, One Sky" was the main message of our evening. All people have been very friendly and thanked us for giving them a chance to have a look to our nightsky.
