"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."

2019 Theme:

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!

We do a bilingual (français-english) night sky discovery session when we have english speaking people in our group.

We will be outdoors at our observatory to explore the night sky with our instruments, if sky conditions permit.

The activity is held only when the sky allows astronomical observations *.


The activity starts at: 9:30 pm from June 24th to July 31st.

The activity starts at: 8:30 pm from august 1st to august 30th.

* 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 2 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: 8-99 years $ 10. All taxes included.

If you have kids 7 years old and under, just reserve your places. We will make you pay only for people of age 8 and up directly at the observatory.
