Due to the absence of a moon and the summer period, these 3 days are particularly favourable for seeing a large number of shooting stars.
They are in reality comet debris moving at the exceptional speed of 60 km/s.
Upon encountering Earth's atmosphere, these meteors burn up to become shooting stars.
To take advantage of an optimal observation window, it will be necessary to wait until approximately 11 p.m. for night to have completely fallen.
The objective of this event is to raise awareness of astronomy among the general public and to show that

For this reason, activities are planned throughout France: observations, workshops, conferences, etc.
