  • The perfect darkness of Lignan made it appear the starry sky in all its beauty. Expert astronomer explanations are very interesting, the language is understandable, the wonder laser tracking and supporting the eye to the telescope is something that can't be explained, must be lived. A huge thank you for making me see the Orion Nebula, a dream. Recommendation: wear a lot. 1 now you half to 5 degrees below zero can be torture. The only fact is: is a magical place, a top experience, a privilege. So who is there should shut up, listen, learn, respecting who with passion and commitment he spends time explaining. The laughter and the noises are more trips, not for this.

  • Wonderful: why is set amongst the peaks, in one of the wildest valleys of Val d'Aosta; because it offers a show within the show to visitors who can explore the sky with telescopes at night on the terrace dedicated; for scholars and researchers working there. All young, passionate, highly trained. Brains that do not fuggono...se not between galaxies

  • I accompanied my daughter (3 high school) and a friend of hers. We did both the daytime visit that night. The visit includes the vision of Sun in projection and its spectrum, an explanation of the structure, a visit to the main telescope, and, as was visible, a look at the phase of Venus by day through one of the telescopes of the terrace. The night tour you are all the time on the terrace (cover!!) and is the master the Visual observation of the sky, with objects visible at that time and in that season. The observation takes place both to the naked eye it with telescopes. Among others we saw the Orion Nebula and the Pleiades. Very interesting observation of the different colored stars. The researcher who made as a guide was very knowledgable and made appealing evening even for non-experts. Watch the road coming from Aosta: my sat made me do a side street was ice cold and I had to go back: pass from Nus.

  • I state that with his Astronomical Observatory Lignan is a place that I consider very interesting, indeed mind-blowing, and I highly recommend a visit to all concerned to approach the world of astronomy or maybe you want to show something this wonderful world to their children. The Observatory is open only a few days: you have to find out when it is. The Observatory includes a planetarium where everyone can appreciate the spectacle of a projection: periodically we prepare projections centered on various topics of astronomy. In the premises of the Observatory are organized conferences on specific topics. By day, in a particular room of the Observatory, you can see a projected image on the screen of the solar disk (with out any stains).  The Observatory's main telescope is shown but cannot be used by ordinary visitors; When it's dark, visitors can use the "small" telescopes of the Observatory terrace. This is the most beautiful experience but also the most difficult for whoever comes for the first time. Who is accustomed to seeing the photographs taken by Hubble, he'd prefer a nice poster hanging in the room.  Those who see with their own eyes, in the eyepiece Saturn ... then maybe big wants to be an astronomer. A 5-minute walk from the Observatory there are more chances to sleep and eat. Annually, in late summer, is held in Lignan "Star Party", an event lasting several days, with the participation of hundreds of amateur astronomers and with dozens of initiatives.
