New Caledonia 2016 Astronomy in New Caledonia

Issue date 05 August 2016

The 26th “Nuits des Etoiles” event was held on 5, 6 and 7 August 2016. Sky-watching fans in New Caledonia, all over France and in various countries in Europe and Africa are invited to join fellow stargazers in contemplation of the seasonal constellations and visible planets (this year, these include Jupiter, Mars and Saturn), or to watch out for eagerly awaited shooting stars.

The stamp illustrates the most powerful telescope in New Caledonia, the Dobson 600, recently built by the members of the New Caledonian Association for Astronomy (ACA); it also shows the stars of the famous Southern Cross, the best known constellation in the southern hemisphere. 

The luminous beauty of the stars has been highlighted by using glow-in-the-dark printing technology: the stars on both the single stamps and stamp sheets light up in the dark!
