STARRY SKY DISCOVERY
Season's end on august 30th 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!
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!
We follow the weather forecast assiduously from 5 different weather models. For a given evening, it is not uncommon for forecasts to change in the preceding afternoon. So if the forecast tends not to allow quality observations for the time you have booked, we will contact you by email at the end of the afternoon to notify you that the activity will unfortunately be canceled.
Rates: 8-99 years $ 10. All taxes included.
Here are some of our starry sky photographs:
