Star-gazing night is back from July 28 to July 30, 2017. To be in the front row and enjoy the show without being disturbed by the city’s light pollution, head to the top of the Montparnasse tower and its observatory at a height of over 200 m.
To get close to the stars on a night in Paris, there is something simpler than becoming an astronaut. All you have to do is climb up the Montparnasse Tower. On July 28, 29 and 30, the panoramic observatory of the impressive glass tower invites you to live out the 27th edition of the star-gazing night from the top of the capital’s highest peak!
Looking over Paris from 210 m, the observatory allows you to admire the sky’s beauty without being disturbed by the city’s lights. Five observation posts equipped with telescopes and binoculars and presented by AFA’s members (members from the French Astronomy Association) will be set on the panoramic rooftop. Everything will be gathered together so you can be amazed by the Milky Way, its constellations, its shooting stars and its mysterious planets.
At the 56th floor, you can also access to a temporary exhibition as well as attend conferences about livable planets and digital workshops to polish your astronomic knowledge in a playful way.
You will leave being starry-eyed!
