Solar Equation in the Ulm Münster

We encountered a beautiful surprise in the foyer of the Ulm Münster, Ulm’s large cathedral in Baden-Württemberg. The Solar Equation is a limited-time art installation inside the Münster in celebration of the cathedral’s 125th anniversary. The artist, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, created a balloon 200 million times smaller than our sun and then projected images of the sun directly from NASA onto the surface of the balloon. The result is a ever-changing, beautiful mini-sun inside the cathedral.

You never know what you what you will find as you are out and exploring! The old and new are both ready to be found!
