ASTRON/JIVE Open Day (Dwingeloo) and LofarDag (Exloo)

Submitter: Roy van der Werp
Description: ASTRON and JIVE Open Day

On Sunday 4 October, from 12:00 to 17:00, at the Dwingeloo Observatory, everybody will be welcomed again in the world of Radio Astronomy!

There will be a wide range of activities, from making pulsars to treasure hunting! Our astronomers will answer almost all your questions about Radio Astronomy and the Universe.

The 25m Dwingeloo Radio telescope will be open to the public, and CAMRAS will organise various activities around it.


In addition, on the same day, the LofarTafel will organise its own Open Day at LOFAR, the largest radio telescope in the world, in Exloo. This will also be from 12:00 to 17:00.

As in Dwingeloo, there will be a lot of activities in Exloo. Not only will the LOFAR telescope be explained, but also the Nature surrounding it.

Do you find it hard to make a choice between the two Open Days? Why not go to both? It's only 30 minutes apart.

See you on Sunday!
