Mira Public Observatory, Grimbergen, Belgium Reviews
Mira Public Observatory, Grimbergen, Belgium Dec 15, 2008
Together with some colleagues I visited the Mira Public Observatory in Grimbergen just outside Brussels. Grimbergen is mostly famous for its great beer and locally the Christmas market every December.
The Observatory is situated in the middle of the city not far away from the church and like many old observatories the city development has caught up with them; the places are not anymore ideal for star watch due to the city light.
We had a very enthusiastic tour guide and I have always been fascinated by people who truly love what they are doing and this guy was one of them.
We were fairly unlucky with the evening that we had chosen since the clouds were hanging low but never the less we had an interesting tour.
