Côte d'Azur Observatory

The Côte d'Azur Observatory (Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur, OCA) originated in 1988 with the merger of two observatories:

  1. Nice Observatory
  2. Centre de recherches en géodynamique et astrométrie (CERGA)

Cote d'Azure Observatory tested beam combining technology at CHARA array.[1]

Astronomers developed a theory about M-Type asteroids, that may be tested by the planned spacecraft Pysche.[2]
