ESO Open House Day 2018
On Saturday 13 October 2018, ESO’s Headquarters in Garching, Germany, opened its doors for ESO’s yearly Open House Day. Along with other institutes 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. This year’s Open House Day also included events at the ESO Supernova Planetarium & Visitor Centre, which opened in April this year.
Attendees waited impatiently for the doors to open at 11:00, eager to experience all the different activities on offer. 5200 people took the opportunity to have their questions answered by experienced astronomers and to peer behind the scenes of an organisation at the forefront of astronomical research. The programme included live experiments, guided tours, an exhibition of ESO’s multiple observatories, talks from ESO scientists, and a live connection to ESO’s sites in Chile.
