An interactive weather station data from the 16th century
During 15 years, Tycho Brahe and his assistants kept a meteorological diary in Ven. The purpose was to investigate if there was any connection between earthly and sky weather conditions. We want to continue the tradition and spread the knowledge of these early meteorological inputs. Therefore, there is an interactive weather station behind the southwestern wall of the museum area.
Here you can, in six different ways, measure weather and compare your observations with Tycho’s own and other visitors. You can measure wind direction, humidity, temperature, precipitation, and atmospheric pressure. Your observations can then be sent in an email, and you can learn more about different methods of measurement for the weather. The first observation was made by Crown Princess Victoria in conjunction with the opening of the new exhibition in the church in 2005.
