Observation Area

For a couple of years the ‚Sternenfreunde Riesa’ observe the fantastic starry sky of Riesa from the Airfield Canitz . Although this location is close to a city, it affords good conditions to for observing the sky and taking pictures. From this point of view you can have a look at the complete horizon. Espacially the southern sky is not influenced by artifical light. When we observe at this point, you’ll find us directly behind the entry-marker ‘Canitz’. A little gas pressure station is located in the nearest surrounding.

We invite all interested people to visit us, to watch the beautiful night sky and be part of an fantastic journey through our universe!
