45 years of Riesas observatory


45 years ago the observatory of Riesa gets its official building permission. So it is an anniversary for us to celebrate this date with all our members, guests and habitants. We do not know an exactly date for the first opening in 1969, so we have only this official date from the council to date the founding of the observatory. In GDR Times there were built many of these small observatory all over the country. Over 300 are known and perhaps it is the worlds biggest population of observatories in such a small region. In the 1950s the astronomical science gets a school subject in east germany and so they start up to built many of public observatories in nearly every city. On June 18th in 1969 the city of Riesa permite the founding of our observatory as part of a new school here. On this day 45 years later, we invite you all to come to our staffed office and celebrate with us. We will welcome you with fresh brewed coffee, cake, talks and professional sun - observation. We are looking forward to see you there.
