What you'll do

You are in a natural and preserved area near the gorges of Verdon, with a black sky. This is an original experience accessible to all. 9 pm: welcome with a tea, explanation of the program using a sky map. 9.30 pm: in the observatory, discover the telescope controlled by computer. You will adjust the telescope to your eye to look at the stars with personalized explanations. At the end of the observation: if requested, some scientific research in which I'm active. And if the Moon is present, you can immortalize the image through the telescope with your mobile phone. I hope that you will spent a beautiful evening, perceiving the place of our fragile little planet in the universe. An unforgettable experience to dream to the stars!

Where you'll be

From the garden, you will discover the constellations. In the observatory, it is a real window to the universe that I will open to you. You will see, for example, planets like Jupiter and its satellites, Saturn with its rings, the Moon and its craters, a galaxy, even perhaps a comet.
