CELEBRATING TWO YEARS OF OBSERVING THE BOHINJ NIGHT SKY

UNIVERSE FROM VOGEL By taking a cable-car to Vogel many nuisances for astronomical observations are left below: a sixth of the Earth atmosphere, frequently also most of its haze, humidity, or artificial lightning. Clear skies offer a clarity of view that the national park can be proud of. Moon-less nights offer views of Jupiter with its moons.

For many of the stars we now know that there are Earth-like planets circling around them. And there will be clusters of stars, some of them older than our own Earth, and galaxies with hundreds of billions of stars which tell us about the evolution of the Universe as a whole. The take-away message is clearly that everyone can, with some effort, expand his/her own view of the world, and recognize importance of protecting it. Looking at the night sky at Vogel can be an illuminating experience.
