National Astronomical Observatory of Japan

By spotogspindel | October 8, 2016

Stargazing at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan.


My trip to Japan has some incredible treats! I was invited by professor Agata to give a talk at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan. It´s´is connected to my Master-research about eco-scenography within the Global Science Opera.


I´m just a student, yet I am asked to speak here to the colleagues in the information-department. I am so incredibly honored! I am humbled, honored and proud! Such nice people, so warm and welcoming. With so many questions about both eco-scenography and about the Global Science Opera.


And the icing on the cake? A private tour to a working telescope by professor Agata. Twice a month they have a public viewing. Each time, 300 people visit and can look through the telescope. What a wonderful idea! That an observatory is open for the public, not only to look AT but THROUGH the telescopes. Agata-san took me to have a peek ten minutes before the gates opened. Isn´t it beautiful, the telescope?!

    What an honor, and what a cool thing to do! And how amazing (and I am sure well deserved) that you were asked to speak! Happy for you. 🙂
