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

Dear visitors and supporters,

We are very happy to bring you some more virtual astronomy offers. On Thursday, 4 March at 18:00 CET, join our presenter Tobi Beuchert on a live virtual tour of the exhibition in the ESO Supernova. Join Tobi to learn more about how we use ESO telescopes to unlock the mysteries of the Universe. The tour will be in German and you can watch live (or catch up later) on our YouTube channel here

On our YouTube channel you can also watch a previous virtual tour, where Tobi explained the history of the Solar System, as well as many short clips on a variety of topics (in German with English subtitles). We encourage you to subscribe to our YouTube channel to be notified whenever we add new videos.

Many thanks for your continued support. We hope very much that we can welcome you again soon in the ESO Supernova.

The ESO Supernova Team
