Sorry, our observatory is temporary closed due to Corona Regulations!
Our observatory at Melle on Oldendorfer Berg is our central place to explore space. Guests are always welcome. Every Saturday after dark (in winter from 8 p.m.) the observatory is manned until about midnight to explore the stars with our visitors. Start of the guided observation is 8pm. A prerequisite is, of course, a clear sky. In June and July the sky is too bright for observations due to the midnight dusk.
We accept a small fee of 3 € (1,50 € reduced) per person. If you want to go sure that our observatory is manned on Saturday, you can call us: (-Contact-)
Our regular table, the Astro-Stammtisch, meets every odd week’s Wednesday at half past 7 at the "PONTosPARK" restaurant in Osnabrück. On these open to public events we talk about all sorts of astronomy topics other interesting stuff.
Our Astronomische Arbeitsgemeinschaft meets on astronomically oriented events on the last Friday of the month (except during the school holidays) starting at 8 p.m. at the Museum am Schölerberg.
Guests are welcome to all our events! You can also contact us, for example for a private guide at our observatory, or connect with us via Facebook. Information at (-Contact-)
