Welcome to the Center for Astronomy of Heidelberg University

On June 13th, the third Gaia data catalog (Gaia DR3) was released, opening a new and spectacular treasure trove for researchers. (2022/06/13)

Dr Mélanie Chevance and her group aims to quantify how matter flows within galaxies. The German Research Foundation (DFG) has allocated 1.7 million Euro to fund the group over a period of six years. (2022/05/23)

Prof. Dr Eva Grebel is the first to win the new medal awarded jointly by the Royal Astronomical Society and the German Astronomical Society. (2022/04/08)

The Hector Fellow Academy has presented the Hector Research Career Development Award. The jury selected three scientists from the applications, including Dylan Nelson, who heads an Emmy Noether research group at ITA. (2022/02/07)

A 3900 light-years-long structure has been identified that consists almost entirely of atomic hydrogen. It provides a unique view of matter at the beginning of the star-formation process. ZAH scientists have contributed to the analysis. (2022/01/10)

In an orbit around a binary star system a planet was discovered, ten times more massive than Jupiter. Dr Sabine Reffert from the Königstuhl State Observatory (Landessternwarte) was involved in the observations and their evaluation. (2021/12/09)
