STARRY SKY DISCOVERY
Season 2019 has ended, we'll be back at summer 2020
"We lived unforgettable moments under the starry sky of Charlevoix. We observed various constellations, the Moon and its craters as well as Saturn and its rings through the telescope of the Observatory."
The Universe in questions
The astronomical evenings begin with an animated quiz session on various topics related to astronomy. This is happening in our Salon Galilée, our presentation room.
It's a bit like the science show Génial! at Télé-Québec. It's educational, fun and enjoyable!
Then we go outside to explore the night sky with our instruments, if conditions permit.
The activity is held only when the sky allows astronomical observations *.
The activity starts at: 7 pm from June 22nd to July 31st.
6 pm from august 1st to august 30th
We suggest that you have a dinner during the french presentation and to come back for observations.
Thank you for presenting fifteen minutes in advance!
* To know if the sky will allow the activity, call us, or come when the weather forecast announces a clear sky.
The activity lasts approximately 3 hours. Plan to wear warm clothes!
* If, despite the forecasts, the sky gets cloudy during the evening, a pass will be given to return for free during the season.
Rates: 0-5 years: $ 0, 6-14 years $ 8, 15 years and over $ 16. All taxes included.
During the day, come on in and take a look at our star through our solar scope. It's free!
