The Observatory at the University of Białystok
We are pleased to invite all interested parties to Białystok, Poland, for the 40th installment of the European Symposium on Occultation Projects. The European Symposium on Occultation Projects is organised annually by the International Occultation Timing Association/European Section (IOTA/ES).
IOTA/ES's annual conference will, as always, include talks and lectures as well as interesting excursions.
In keeping with ESOP tradition, post conference excursions will be offered.
Białystok is the largest city in northeastern Poland and the capital of the Podlaskie Voivodeship. The City is situated in the Białystok Uplands of the Podlaskie Plain, part of the 'Green Lungs of Poland'. It is situated close to Belarus and Lithuania. The Biała River passes through the city.
In addition to a medical university and other colleges, the modern Białystok University is the largest teaching institution in Białystok with over 17,000 students.
By the way: If you wonder about the emptiness in Białystok - most of the photos were taken in spring 2021, during the strict CoV-19 restrictions.
