Starry Milky Way: The newest Gaia atlas of our galaxy (EN)

On Tuesday, February 26, you may admire the star sky and our galaxy in the 20 meter planetarium of DOT. We will start to lookup at the star sky from Earth and guide you along the constellations. We will then leave Earth and travel through our home galaxy, the Milky Way. We now know more about the Milky Way than ever before, thanks to the latest results of the #Gaia space observatory. In this planetarium show we will show the newest maps of the Milky Way with more than a billion stars from Gaia Data Release 2.
