People with the Club Astronomique de la Region Lilloise (CARL, Lille Region Astronomical Society) observe the sky through a telescope on August 2, 2014 in Villeneuve-d'Ascq, northern France, as part of the 24th "Nuit des Etoiles 2014" (The Night of the Stars) event that goes through August 1-3. Throughout France and in several European and African countries, hundreds of sites welcome amateurs and certified astronomists to contemplate the sky, as organizers seek to renew an annual free event, open to all, in the spirit of knowledge sharing and discovery of heaven for all.
