 +During the day hundreds of people visited our planeterrella and learnt about the earth'​s aurora. There were several talks throughout the day were we explained to primary school children how to see the ISS in the night sky, how to use the planispheres we distributed to find out in what stars are visible in the sky and through which constellations the ISS appears to move. The colouring competition for primary school children, Ask-an-Astronomer booth and play dough Solar System were also a great success.
