Evening under the stars
A walk for the curious, both young and old, to take time to listen to nature and dream under the stars of great stories from Greek mythology.
After a short walk to ease into the night, we'll silently decipher what each of us sees in the sky, and then discern galaxies, stars, planets and other satellites...
With the help of sky maps, and equipped with headlamps and red filters, we'll then walk with our heads in the stars, spotting the constellations that will lead us from one to another by an imaginary thread.
Once the sky has yielded up some of its secrets, the constellations will tell us the wacky, magical stories of the Olympian gods...
Scientific topics (basic level) :
* Definition of galaxies, stars, planets, etc.
* Order of magnitudes: size, distance, temporality
* Use of stars for navigation and Greek mythology
From 14/06 to 13/09, every Tuesday.
