The association La Voie Lactée works to discover astronomy and stars, bringing together fans of the sky and space. They have been proposing for 24 years to everyone to get closer to the stars and planets during observation sessions. Equiped for now with handable telescopes for their various interventions, they decided this year to strengthen their capacities by building the first domed observatory in the region. As an association of volunteers only, it is their passion and desire to share with as many people as possible that drives them. To find out more about their association, you can visit their website http://lvl.chenaud.free.fr and why not to help them to finance the creation of the observatory https://www.leetchi.com/c/observatoire-de-chenaud
