Open House Day 2016

On 22 October 2016, ESO Headquarters in Garching, Germany, opened its doors to the public. In conjunction with other facilities based on the science campus in Garching, ESO invited visitors to experience first-hand its work as the world’s leading ground-based astronomy organisation.

Before the doors had even opened at 11:00, people were waiting outside, eager to experience all the different activities available. In total, some 4300 people grabbed the chance to have their questions answered by experienced astronomers; see live experiments (like here where ESO staff Andreas Jost shares the joy of electronics); join guided tours through the headquarters; listen to talks about ongoing astronomical research; build their own comet; and even participate in live interviews with astronomers in the Chilean Atacama Desert.

If you participated in the Open House Day 2016 and took pictures, we invite you to share them on the Your ESO Pictures Flickr group.
