Sunrise as you have never seen it

A view from inside the planetarium at the ESO Supernova Planetarium & Visitor Centre, which opened its doors to the public on Saturday 28 April 2018. The building is open five days a week and features planetarium screenings, tours and a permanent exhibition in both German and English. The 360-degree tilted planetarium dome does not just give the audience the sensation of watching the Universe, but of being immersed in it. The Sun rises - not over the horizon as we see it on Earth, but over the curve of the Earth itself.
