Seigneurie du Triton

Astronomy

The astronomy package at the Seigneurie du Triton

Discover the starry night sky overlooking La Seigneurie du triton supervised by a passionate and qualified astronomer. The site is in the forest where there is no visual pollution, the visibility of the stars and the night sky is out of this world. La Seigneurie du Triton is currently in the process of obtaining an accreditation from the International Dark Sky Association as a Starry Sky Reserve, our territory is protected, and why not do the same with our sky?

Observe the night sky like never seen before! A weekend never to forget, in the means of preparation and observation of the sky, as well as the basis of photo astronomy. No equipment on your part is required, only your eyes will allow you to aim higher than the stars.

Hurry, as we only have a limited amount of spaces for this amazing experience, these spaces will leave as quick as a shooting star in the sky!
