Nuit des musées 2012 : les lunes de Jupiter


Jupiter's satellites, or Galilean moons, discovered by Galileo Galilei in 1610. This exhibit against the lavish walls in the queen's guards room charmed me!

Les satellites de Jupiter ou lunes galiléennes, ont été découverts par Galiléo Galilée en 1610 et figurent sur un plafond du château. Cette représentation aérienne et poétique dans le salon des gardes de la reine m'a charmée !

Makes me think of a restaurant in Philadelphia we like called Swanky Bubbles. The theme is sushi and champagne. If you would rather see planets, well, then, have another glass of Moet.

Charming, yes! The whole night there seems enchanted.
