S1 - 18. UNIVERSE OF AMATEUR ASTRONOMERS (The)
Director(s): Jean-Philippe URBACH – Writer(s): Serge BRUNIER, Bruno BUCHER Contact Print page
In fact, this is how Serge Brunier became an astronomy enthusiast... by observing Saturn and its rings when he was only a child. Ever since, this navigator of the sky has been photographing the stars and tells us about the mysteries of the universe. And to better share the sky with all of us, Serge Brunier has been the first to produce a photo of the entire sky as it can be seen from Earth.
Astronomy is not reserved for professional astronomers only! That is what we learn from this encounter with the world of amateur astronomers. Some are chasing eclipses, others specialize on comets or nebulae. But each in their own way, these enthusiasts explore space, take possession of the sky by sketching it or taking photographs and sometimes, they make incredible discoveries that are worthy of those made by professional scientists.
