A planetarium and observatory that opened recently offers visitors an exciting journey into space. Equipped with the latest technology, the center enables children and youth to learn the basics of astronomy.
Tuzla Municipality has brought a planetarium and observatory into service, gathering space-related events under a single roof, to give children and youth the opportunity to understand the world and universe and enable those interested in these topics to conduct research. The center offers residents the chance to look into the depths of the universe and to easily access information on space sciences.
Synthetic images of the sun, planets, stars and other heavenly bodies are reflected on the dome-shaped ceiling with the help of a special reflector.
The telescope in the observatory, which has a diameter of 35 centimeters, enables people to observe different structures of the sun in daylight and different heavenly bodies at night with the help of professional trainers. Thus, it is possible to observe various heavenly bodies with a bright display at the Tuzla Planetarium and Observatory, which is equipped with the latest technology.
The observatorywill also have three-dimensional interactive presentations as well as separate presentations on the sky and astronomy. The center has a capacity of 58 and visitors can lie on their chairs and enjoy the depths of universe.
Special movies prepared for the planetarium help to improve children's basic knowledge of astronomy.
Moreover, a shadow clock situated in the Tuzla Planetarium and Observatory gives clues about the hour with the help of a shadow shaped by the sun's motions. It is possible to get information about hours, minutes and the location of the sun on different signs of the zodiac with the shadow clock with a sensitivity ratio of 10 days.
Tuzla Mayor Şadi Yazıcı, who is known for his interest in science and technology, and pioneers the establishment of new places in Tuzla, said he is very happy to have brought the first and only planetarium and observatory in the region.
"It is very important to raise our children with the right information. As descendants of a civilization that raised the most important astronomers in history, we brought a wide range of opportunities regarding space and astronomy under the same roof in this information era. Astronomy has been curiously studied since the beginning of the history of humanity. Our motivation is to transfer the accumulated knowledge of our ancestors, which dominated world history, to next generations. We want our children to understand and research the world as well as to shape their futures with the right purposes. We will continue our work in this direction with the effort and hope of raising the most successful astronomers in the future here, who are bound by their values and who have passion for reading and research," he said.
