It has already been 31 years since the Star Nights were created by theFrench Association of Astronomy in order to discover astronomy curious people of all kinds. Since then, more than 250 astronomy clubs, tourist offices, holiday centers and town halls have followed them in this event, and offer more than a hundred events in France.
This year, the star nights take place the August 5, 6 and 7, 2022 and despite the greater light pollution in Ile-de-France that in other places in France, the capital and its surroundings also take part in this event for budding astronomers, entirely free and accessible to all ages, from the youngest to the oldest!
Although the Moon be present this year for the weekend of August 6, the sky will be clearly visible, if the weather is nice ! If the sky is clear, the conditions will be met to follow the Perseidsthese shooting Stars which seem to come from perseus constellation and which are due to the passage of the Comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle close to the sun.
A passage that causes, each year between July 17 and August 24, a cloud of debris over several tens of millions of kilometers, that our beautiful blue planet crosses to the delight of our amazed eyes! The summer triangle constellations – the Lyre, the Swan and the Eagle – will allow, for their part, to find their way easily in the dark night!
For a stargazing in the best conditions, we advise you to wear comfortable shoesto plan warm clothesto provide a mosquito repellentbut also your pair of binoculars as well as a headlamp (illuminating red), if you have this at home.
Note that in case of bad weather, bad weather or covered sky by the clouds or even in the event of a summer pollution peak, there is a good chance that the planned events will be canceledso remember to check with associations and municipalities if you have any doubts, a few days before.
