Réunion Astronomical Observatory Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Sky-watching sessions are held here at Réunion's astronomical observatory, considered one of the best sites in the southern hemisphere. A unique spectacle of constellations, stars, planets and galactic trails is on view every evening through the astronomic telescopes.
