Football match under the starlight

on 06 October 2010

The Romanian Space Agency, the Kinderzukunft - Rudolf Walther Foundation - Branch of Timisoara, the Timisoara Branch of the Romanian Academy, the Astronomical Observatory and "Antares" Astroclub , are pleased to invite you on Wednesday, 7 July 2010, from 19.00 at a  football match under the starlight.

The event will take place at the foundation, on Rudolf Walther no. 1 Street, where two teams of children, beneficiaries of the services offered by the Foundation, will meet in a football game, and then, guided by professional and amateur astronomers will observe the starry sky through a telescope and will learn fascinating things about the infinite universe that surrounds us. This unique activity that combines two very different fields - football and astronomy - is celebrating under the motto "mens sana in corpore sano" the end of the World Cup and the International Year of Astronomy. Similar games will be held on the same day in other parts of the Earth, such as Brazil, Iraq and Sri Lanka.
