Pic du Midi, First skyline

Š Alain FELIX / hemis.fr

Feature

France :


Parrainée par Hubert Reeves, la réserve de ciel étoilé du Pic du Midi aura pour but de préserver la qualité du ciel étoilé autour du site, déjà connu pour son magnifique panorama sur les Pyrénées et son observatoire astronomique de renommée mondiale, construit il y a plus de 130 ans. Hubert Reeves, qui a sut le projet de la réserve du Mont-Mégantic au Canada créée par la québécoise Chloé Legris, seul site mondial labellisé jusqu’à présent par l’International Dark Sky Association (IDA), est intervenu le 11 juin 2009 lors d’une conférence sur les pollutions lumineuses pour défendre le projet. En n'oubliant pas que la constitution de telles réserves est aussi un des objectifs du Grenelle de l'Environnement. Text : Philippe Renault (text available)
