Light Years: Your view of space and stars
IYA2009 - Urania Observatory, Vienna, Austria
Urania Observatory in Vienna, Austria is one of the fine Observatories in the city.
It also serves as a public educational institute.
It was opened in 1910 by Franz Joesph I of Austria. And named after the Muse Urania who represents Astronomy.
I took these candid shots during my walk to the city center of Vienna this summer.
