The 11th Night of Stars on the Riviera
Let’s see the stars. That’s what you are proposed from Thursday August 9th to Saturday August 11th for the 11th Night of Stars. These dates have not been decided at random. They have been chosen to match an astronomic phenomenon : a swarm of meteorite dust that is crossed by Earth every year in August. Hence some numerous shooting stars (around 120 per hour) and the possibility to observe planet Mars by eye. For such an event, 349 sky observation sites will be opened to the plublic in France, as against 300 last year. These 300 sites welcomed more than 100.000 people.On the French Riviera, the main animations sites will be in Valdeblore, Antibes, Saint-Laurent-du-Var, Cagnes-sur-Mer and Séranon.
