ESO — Reaching New Heights in Astronomy
ESO Supernova Public Newsletter
1 February 2021

Dear visitor and supporters,

We hope that 2021 has started well for you all.

Although the ESO Supernova currently remains closed, we are happy to bring you some more virtual astronomy offers. The first of these is a live virtual tour of our exhibition, which takes place on 4 February.

We are happy to be hosting the annual MPE Women in Astronomy talk, this year presented by ESO astronomer, Dr. Suzanna Randall. This event will take place on Thursday 11 February at 19:00 CET.

If you did not already complete our short survey, we would be very grateful if you could spend 5 minutes on it. The information you provide will help us to continue to improve our offers.

Many thanks for your continued support. We look forward to welcoming you again as soon as possible.
