Nuit des musées 2012 : le système solaire


During the passion for planets evening at the palace, the queen's nobles room was transformed into an extraordinarily wonderful solar system! There are lights on Artsy Versailles.

La chambre des nobles de la reine fut transformée, le temps de la soirée passion des astres, en un système solaire tout à fait extraordinaire ! Il y a des lumières sur Artsy Versailles.

Schwer zu sagen, welches besser ist, gestern oder heute. Werde auf jeden Fall immer besser. Wunderbar wo solches möglich ist.

Einen guten Dienstag dir.

Unusual. These are just mannequins?

This is really cool! I love it.

It must be quite a sight considering the setting. Thanks for taking us inside, it's gorgeous.

Hey, what's Pluto doing there? Call the police and kick it out.

The design is visually arresting and mysterious but I still find a municipal passion for planets hard to fathom. I mean, why not isotopes or flavors of ice cream or species of ducks?

Amazing display.

I love the use of mannequins here - you caught the low light gorgeously!

@ Jack: yes, mannequins.

@ Bob: it draws on the history of the palace. Modern science had just begun and the kings were interested and encouraged it.

If you had merely told me about this "passion for the planets" it would have hard to grasp what you were talking about...but your photos make it all very clear and 'tis a fascinating display, indeed.

In this country, sadly, I think too many have sunk back into astrology rather than facing the future with astronomy.
