ASTRONOMY

Head in the Stars

The boundless cosmos seen through its telescope, a dimension rarely accessed from populated areas usually filled with other interfering lights. Fortunately, the Domaine sits under a night sky that allows us to see the wonders of the universe…

The Velan Pavilion is an observatory that houses two superior-quality telescopes which were built for observing the sun. You’ll also find a fully-equipped screening room which can accommodate up to 50 people and an outdoor viewing area! Come and watch the sky from the second largest public telescope in Quebec! Welcome to school, summer-camp, day-camp, seniors and astronomy groups!

Presentation and observation sessions are held every Saturday evening from 8:00 pm.
