From July 3 to August 28, 2021, "Paris sous les étoiles" or Paris under the stars is back. In partnership with the Association Française d'Astronomie, Paris city hall hosts star-gazing nights from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. in different parks and gardens in Paris. Free of charge, free of prior booking, you only have to show up (with facemasks covering up your noses and mouths), and enjoy the telescopes the association will provide.

Are you fascinated by the Neowise comet? Do you have the chills when you see a shooting star? If so, do not miss Paris sous les étoiles or Paris under the stars! This event - celebrating its 4th edition in 2021 - invites children and adults to 20 star-gazing nights. Hosts from the French Association of Astronomy . (or the French Association of Astronomy) will accompany you so that you can find Jupiter, Saturn, the Great Bear and even the moon’s craters, that you can discover with telescopes lent on the occasion.

This year's edition 2020 of Paris sous les étoiles is to be enjoyed from July 3 to August 28. Still open for free to all, these star-gazing nights comply with health guidelines. Therefore, facemask-wearing is compulsory. Hosts can deny access to telescopes if they consider health precautions are not complied with.
