Hvězdárna Valašské Meziříčí – Planeta Jupiter
Giant models of Earth and Jupiter light up the city. Pupils of local schools will get to know the four-metre-high Earth as a novel teaching aid, which from the new year onwards will help with teaching not only geography.
Experience Jupiter for the first time in the Czech Republic! We have prepared the 5.5m model especially for the occasion of the Světlo Valmez festival. The data for the print was supplied by the Valasské Meziříč Observatory in the best resolution available so far. You can be the first to take a picture with the model of the largest planet in the solar system. You will also be able to take part in the accompanying programme, which starts for the first time on Friday evening at the Valašské Meziříčí Observatory.
„The inflatable planets will be placed on opposite banks of the Rožnovská Bečva River in the city centre. Space enthusiasts will have the staff of the local observatory and planetarium on site all evening to answer any space-related questions they may have.“
