In the heart of the lavender fields, the sky is for everyone. Located on what used to be a missile launch zone from the Plateau d'Albion, the SIRENE (Restored Site for Starry Nights) Observatory is the perfect setting for astronomical observations.
At an altitude of 1,100 metres, enjoy a clear sky far from any source of light pollution, boasting 360° views. Thanks to its geographical location and top-quality instruments, the Observatory welcomes beginners, amateurs, and school groups to see one of the most beautiful skies of Europe.
Led by professionals; astronomy lovers, or simply anyone who's curious, can come to the observatory for an exhilarating night of star-gazing where "one feels small without feeling diminished".
Several options are on offer:
- Night outing to spend an evening admiring the planets and galaxies.
- Discovery evening with astronomy enthusiasts
- Day or night observations for amateurs using a range of different telescopes.
- Observation with your own instrument.
The Sirène Observatory also participates in the "Nuit des Etoiles" (Night of the Stars) every year in August.
