Training stage for the M2 Astrophysics 2018-2019

The training stage for the Master 2 Astrophysique (University Claude Bernard Lyon 1 and University of Montpellier) and Master 2 Cosmos, Champs et Particules (University of Montpellier) has been from 8 to 12 October 2017 at the Observatory of Haute-Provence (OHP) with 21 students supervised by Jean-François Gonzalez (CRAL, UCBL1), Julien Morin (LUPM, Univ. Montpellier) and Bertrand Plez (LUPM, Univ. Montpellier). With three clear nights out of four, they have acquired observational data for eight projects (age and distance of stellar clusters, temperature and pression of a nebula, characterization of an exoplanet system, etc.). Now, the students are analyzing the data and interpreting them to elaborate their project report for the end of this year.

These training projects received support from the Physics Departments of UCBL1 and Montpellier University, from the LabEX LIO (Lyon) and OCEVU (Montpellier), from the laboratories CRAL (Lyon) and LUPM (Montpellier), and the welcome at the OHP.
