On Sunday 7 October, ASTRON is organising activities on the Milky Way path near the Westerbork telescope, in cooperation with Universe Awareness and CAMRAS, the foundation that manages the Dwingeloo Telescope. The activities are taking place in the Weekend of Science which is part of Oktober Kennismaand (October Knowledhe month).

Making your own exploded star, a pulsar.

Visitors can enjoy a show in the planetarium, operate one of the Westerbork telescope dishes and kids can play on the new play-equipment. At the small dishes on the Milky Way path, kids can participate in other activities such as putting the planets in the right order and shoot small rockets into the sky.

The activities are free of charge.
