Session at the planetarium of the Observatoire astronomique de la Lèbe

Located in the heart of Bugey Valromey in the Ain region, the Observatoire Planétarium du Valromey offers an exploration space that aims to strike the right balance between emotion, discovery and knowledge sharing.

3 different films can be proposed to you (children, teenagers and adults).

- "LUCIA, LE SECRET DES ÉTOILES FILANTES" is recommended from 4 years old.
-DE LA TERRE A L'UNIVERS" is recommended for children over 10 years old.
-LE SOLEIL, NOTRE ETOILE VIVANTE (THE SUN, OUR LIVING STAR) is recommended for children over 10 years old.

After the projection, a specialized animator takes over and projects the image of the celestial vault in which he can make constellations, planets, nebulae, galaxies and other deep sky objects appear....

With a diameter of 7 m, the planetarium can accommodate 40 people comfortably installed in reclining and rotating seats.

The 11h and 16h30 sessions include a 30-minute film: LUCIA, THE SECRET OF SHOOTING STARS
Where do shooting stars come from and how do they occur? What is the origin of meteorites?

The 2pm session includes a 30-minute film: From Earth to the Universe.
Then an observation of the sun is proposed. In case of bad weather the observation is replaced by a projection of the sky in the planetarium.

Open period

From 01/07 to 31/08/2019, daily at 11 am.
