Shop Window Display – Lucien Rudaux & Astronomy

This post was written by Anaïs Niobey

Have you seen Maison de Normandie’s latest window display?

We have decided to highlight a renowned Norman astronomer: Lucien Rudaux as La Manche County Archives are devoting an exhibition to this brilliant photographer and astronomer until 23 December 2022 in Saint-Lô (Manche). We would like to thank the Archives for their help in setting up this display and in particular for the reproduction of photographs and drawings by Lucien Rudaux that you can discover in our windows.

In order to create this exhibition, we also called on Planetarium Ludiver in La Hague (Manche). We want to thank them for the loan of rare objects such as a sextant or an astronomical ring…

Many thanks also to the Jersey Astronomy Club and the Société Jersiaise for their loan of telescopes and photograph.
