A few words about the Mont d'Arbois Astronomy Association

The Mont d'Arbois Astronomy Association aims to develop the scientific and cultural spirit, especially in the field of astronomy, the discovery of stars, the study of the deep sky, the universe and cosmology. It was created in August 2006 under the name of "Megève Astronomy" then took the name of "Mont d'Arbois Astronomy" at the end of 2012. The idea of creating an association and then building an observatory was born from the desire of two friends, Gerard Morand, mayor of Megève from 1977 to 2008 and Pierre Pasteris. The realization of this idea was possible thanks to the help of Baroness Edmond de Rothschild and Mr. Robert Mouawad. Finally, Mr. Jean-Marc Peillex, mayor of Saint-Gervais-les-Bains authorized the construction of the observatory on his commune, at the Mont d'Arbois.
This association gathers today about thirty members, all passionate.
The photographs of this exhibition were all taken by members of the association.
