Would you like to see gas nebulae, planets or the surface of the moon from up close with your own eyes? Visit a Star Viewing Night at Sonnenborgh! During autumn and winter, you can peer through the telescopes every weekend evening.

The programm always consists of a lecture, a demonstration of the telescope and a short tour around the museum. In case of clear skies you can look for objects in the sky yourself! The observatory is open for ages 12+ on Friday evening, and on Saturday evening there is a special Children’s Star Viewing Night for children aged 6 to 12. Take a look at the daytime sky? Visit the observatory for Sun on Sunday: every week, visitors have the opportunity to look through the one of the largest solar telescopes in the Netherlands. Note that the Star Viewing Nights and Sun on Sunday are in Dutch only.
