Star-gazing Nights are 3 days to observe the sky everywhere in France on Friday August 7, Saturday 8, and Sunday 9, 2020. For this event, astronomy enthusiasts meet in the most beautiful observatories in France to gaze at the stars and welcome everyone for introductions to star-gazing with the naked eye or read sky maps, a wonderful moment of sharing, even in Paris!

Star-gazing Nights are coming very soon! For three days, on Friday August 7, Saturday 8, Sundat 9, 2020, you will look at the sky with a fresh eye thanks to the CNES (French National Center for Space Studies), the AFA (French Astronomy Association) and the French National Center for Scientific Research, from the most beautiful spots in France and some are in Ile-de-France!

In 2020, for the new edition of the event, and as well as all August long, we will all focus on three themes: "The Milky Way and the constellations in the summer sky", "The Perseids", and "Mars".

On these new Star-gazing Nights, come and understand the mysteries these extra-terrestrial samples host. Come and meet amateur astronomes, and volunteer hosts here for the different events. And do not forget to observe the starry sky with astronomic lenses and telescopes provided on the occasion.
