On 3rd August the anual event of La Nuit des Etoiles – or Astronomy Festival – is taking place in various venues across France. In Nice the location is the beautiful gardens of the Marc Chagall Musée from 6-11pm.
This is a free event and astronomers will be on hand to help you locate the planets and constellations. From 6pm you will be able to use the special protective telescopes to view the sun and, once the sun has set, astronomers will help you identify the planets and constellations. What an opportunity and in such a lovely setting!
Right now I’m in Brighton in the UK so please share your photos if you go to this lovely event!
