Event

Laurentius Night

Observe shooting stars at 2.350 m above sea level on 11.08.2019

Curtain up for the next big movie show in the starry sky! On the weekend of 11 August 2019, the highlight of the annual shooting star spectacle will once again be in the spotlight.

The shooting star stream of the Perseids takes over the direction of the firmament in the days from August 9th to 14th.

Shooting stars can be admired with much patience and some luck in each night. The shooting star yield is unevenly distributed throughout the year. Among the most reliable meteor streams are the Perseids. Between the 9th and 14th of August you can expect a shooting star every minute. A good opportunity to make wishes come true – because the vernacular knows that with every sighting a wish will come true.

What's Laurentius Night?

Laurentius Night 2018

The shooting stars in August are called the tears of Laurentius. Saint Laurentius was a Roman deacon and died a martyr’s death on a glowing iron rust on 10 August 258.  The northern Italian town of Ravenna is rich in world-famous Byzantine mosaics. In the mausoleum of Galla Placidia (the sister of Emperor Honorius), the martyr in a white robe can be seen approaching the rust heated by blazing flames. The torments that Laurentius suffered did not remain without tears. So every year, even 1760 years after his death, the tears of Laurentius fall from the sky as shooting stars.

Every year at the beginning of August, the earth steers on its orbit around the sun, through a cloud of dust grains. In the atmosphere the particles burn up and we can admire shooting stars.
