Orava’s Village Open-Air Museum – Zuberec

18. December 2019

I think, that Orava’s museum is one of the nicest museum in Slovakia. This is the reason, why I decided to make a photographies at that place and make a photo series with name “How people seen the night sky in the past?” Definitely otherwise that we see night sky today. Large cities produce a lot of light pollution that makes a stargazing worse, makes science research more difficulty, have a negative impact to our health, economic and ecology.

 

The Winter stars (From Big dipper to “shooting star”)

This is the 360 degrees horizontal panorama. On the right side we can see asterism – Big dipper. Many people think, that Big dipper is the constellation, but It’s not. On the oposite side we can see meteor, that burned out in the Earth atmopshere and left beautiful green “tail”.
The brighter stars of the European winter night sky – Winter hexagon, or Winter G. It looks like the brigter star we can see is Capella. But it’s not a true. It’s caused by style of panoramatic projection. The britghter star in the night sky is Sirius – behind a tree.
Well, It’s a great experience to look up the night sky troughout the year

Photography was taken near the gothic church at the beginning of the 15th century.
Can we see the same night sky at the today’s cities, that people could see in the past?
