Welcome to the book launch of “Ich erkenne nur den Großen Wagen – Sternenhimmel verstehen leicht gemacht”. This is about easy-to-understand basic astronomy knowledge for beginners and a guided tour across the sky for people for whom the stars were previously just nameless points of light.
Starting from the Big Dipper, how do I explore the most important constellations in the night sky without any prior knowledge or tools? Why does the star Arcturus win the bronze, silver and gold medals? What is the difference between a meteorite, a meteoroid and a meteor? And what is the difference between the absolute and apparent brightness of stars? “Ich erkenne nur den Großen Wagen” (“I only recognise the Big Dipper”) provides answers to these and many more questions.
In his lecture, Jochen Czechowitz deals with some of these topics and tries to spark interest in astronomy.

Hello, my name is Jochen Czechowitz. I am the author of "Ich erkenne nur den Großen Wagen - Sternenhimmel verstehen leicht gemacht", published by "In Farbe und Bunt" (February 2024). I was born in 1982 in North Rhine-Westphalia, but now live with my family in Baden-Württemberg near Karlsruhe. I have been a Star Trek fan since childhood and am fascinated by the infinite vastness of space. I discovered FedCon a few years ago and have been attending regularly ever since.
