However, we recommend caution if you have children under 3 because the sound level during the screenings is not suitable for them.

It is the projection on its 10-metre diameter hemispheric screen which makes the reputation of the Planetarium Belle Etoile in Épinal. The latter has been ranked third worldwide, after the United States and Japan, for having the most beautiful image. This is due to the high definition of its projections which is renowned at international level. The Planetarium in Épinal is also at the cutting-edge of technology, thanks to its digital projection system. This technique opens up access for numerous effects such as the movements in the Solar System or the variability phenomenon of the stars. It would have been impossible to show via an opto-mechanical system but it is now, thanks to the combination of 12 video projectors.

The projection sessions are held with the doors closed. It is highly recommended to arrive at the planetarium 30 minutes before the session. Moreover, seats are limited so remember to book in advance by contacting the Planetarium on +33 (0)3 29 35 08 02.
