If the sky is overcast, the evening continues inside, with astronomical news, a children activity, a night walk and interactive cosmos.

Main presentations (in French) : 

  • Celestial Movements : In order to plunge into the stars from the start of this activity, you will take a voyage from Earth to the borders of the observable Universe. You will fly over Mount Megantic, glide over our planet, realize the vastness of the solar system, admire our galaxy and reach the ultimate scale of the Universe. You're sure to experience a sensation of infinity
  • From the Earth to the Moon : the Prodigious Journey. Few human adventures pass through the centuries. That of the astronauts of the Apollo missions will cross the millennia. This is the story of the first humans to embark on another world. 50 years later, relive this prodigious journey that has changed our vision of the Moon... and ourselves.
