latest news - May 2023
Aster23 has been launched: a digital meeting place for researchers in astronomy.
3x33 years after the founding of the Section for Astronomy at the Goetheanum in Dornach, a generally accessible independent research corner has been set up with articles by various authors on topics in the fields of Anthroposophy and Astronomy and the bridge between them.
These can be read here - with " Aster23! " you get in.

In the above simulation, the Earth is shown in blue, the Sun in red. The Earth moves on a lemniscate (green) that rotates about its short axis; the Sun similarly moves on the rotating orange lemniscate. The resulting orbits are mathematical circles, the Earth's blue and the Sun's red. In this simulation, these orbits have the same center, but are not in the same plane. Seen from the Earth, the Sun rotates around the Earth as it does in normal astrophysics (not shown separately).
