Dissemination of scientific culture at the Observatory is mostly achieved in collaboration with the Planétarium of Strasbourg University.

The observatory regularly participates in events for the general public, and offers online resources to discover the sky.

Meeting with the public

The Observatory participates each year in activities towards the public, such as the Fête de la Science or the European Patrimony Days.

Shows and visits

The Planétarium offers a variety of shows for a broad audience and school groups for a playful discovery of Universe sciences discoveries.

The Planétarium also offers a guided tour of the Observatory, to discover the instruments and collections of the Grande Coupole, and a patrimony journey where you can discover our Coronelli Globe and its innovative mediation system to compare it with modern astronomical surveys provided by the CDS.

Exploring the sky

Thanks to the ArchesWalker tool, developed at the Observatory in the frame of the ARCHES project, you can explore different types of astronomical objects in multi-wavelength observations.

With AladinLite, developed by the CDS, you can explore images of the sky obtained by dozens of different projects, in all domains of the electromagnetic spectrum.
