What you'll do

I install the stand : table, telescope, chairs.
I explain the movements of celestial bodies, I show how we use this telescope. You'll see the Moon, Jupiter, Saturn, and other curiosities...
I explain several things about distances, planets, stars...

Few people have seen a galaxy in the depths of the universe: we can try ! It is necessary to foresee warm clothes, one is surprised by the freshness of the evening, sometimes. If I have to cancel due to bad weather, you will be refunded in full. In this case I will warn you before 12h.
I can propose this activity in your garden if you prefer.

IMPORTANT ! to offer this activity in English, I ask a friend to help me and I pay her a little ... so I propose the English version for three people minimum, thank you for your comprehension

Please contact me to know about anything else !

In front of my telescope, you will try to see several objects in the sky : Moon, planets etc We will explain about black holes, tides... The activity continues until you want to stop it. I can explain to beginners, and I can answer more difficult questions. Ideal to enjoy a beautiful night in peace. If you master a good camera, take it with you !

We had a wonderful evening with Oliver. He came to our villa so we were able to include the children and we were all amazed at what we could see through the telescope. We could see the stripes on Jupiter and the rings on Saturn and even saw the smudge of a far away galaxy. Oliver made the evening immersive, educational and exciting for the both parents and children. We can never see stars in London, so this was a really special event for us to include on our holiday in Provence. I would definitely recommend if you have some budding astronomers in the family.

Notre expérience a été avancée puis reportée ; Olivier a fait en sorte de lutter contre les caprices de la météo afin que nous puissions bénéficier d'un ciel le plus parfait possible. Avec humour et pédagogie, il a su nous faire partager sa passion et nous a laissé beaucoup de temps pour observer, répondre à nos questions. C'était une belle soirée, partagée dans la convivialité et la bonne humeur. Nous sommes rentrées avec des etoiles plein les yeux.
