  • The place and to forget. We waited with trepidation for weeks on a visit to the Observatory. We expected to see us as in the films screened using new technologies in real space. You can raise your head and navigate between galaxies. Instead we touched a lesson in science for 2hrs and 30, between machines from elementary school made with rolls of toilet paper and prisms toys. Eventually a supposed look at Jupiter through a telescope, take turns in the Group of 25 people. 2 minutes of observation of a white ball to head without seeing anything. Other than Jupiter! And the sky was spot on!
