Daytime visit of the astronomical observatory of Mont-Soleil with observation of the sun.

This one-hour visit of the observatory takes place during the day. It will allow you not only to understand how the main telescope and the special telescope dedicated to the observation of the Sun work, but also to observe the spots and protuberances of our star, live and safely, if the weather is favorable. If you are unable to observe the Sun directly due to bad weather, our planetarium will still allow you to see 180° computer simulations of solar activity, all commented by your guide.
