Mont-Tremblant’s dark skies are the perfect setting for our Astronomy and stargazing evening.
The activity starts at dusk with a presentation of our place in the universe projected onto the dome ceiling of our Mont-Tremblant Astronomy Pavilion. Then when the sky gets dark, and if the night is clear, our presenter will open the retractable roof for guided observation and even photos of the objects in the night sky, using the second largest publicly accessible telescope in Quebec. If the skies are cloudy the roof will stay closed and the night sky will be projected on the dome ceiling for a presentation about the birth and history of the Cosmos (themes may vary).
September events: Saturn – The lord of the rings. The gas giant with its fantastic rings and 81 moons is one of the most spectacular objects in the sky and will be visible in the September night sky. Join us to learn more about this world, so different from ours.
October events: Jupiter – The queen of the solar system: By itself, Jupiter has the same weight as the other 7 planets combined. It shows colorful cloud bands, huge storms that could contain twice the whole of earth and 79 moons. We will explore this system based on all the last discoveries and later take a look at it (and 4 of its biggest moons) in our 400mm telescope.
