Observing stars with the naked eye is already very interesting: you can simply marvel at the abundance of stars in the sky, and distinguish the shades of color of these distant stars. Some stars are bluish, orange or even reddish.

You can also train yourself to recognize the constellations, some of which are very easy, such as Cassiopeia or the Big Dipper...

With a large-diameter telescope, the show becomes fascinating, and you can observe planets, nebulae and galaxies. Depending on the conditions at the time, it may be possible to observe: the craters of the Moon, the rings of Saturn, Jupiter and its satellites, nebulae and galaxies...

The animator will be on hand to take you on a journey through this endless immensity.
