Astronomical observatories provide fabulous opportunities to drift away to the stars and make new discoveries in heaven’s vault! Thanks to interactive exhibitions and astronomy nights, these sites are perfect places to learn more about far-away galaxies and more. When the weather’s nice, the sky may be observed with a telescope and when it’s cloudy, there are multimedia presentations. The subjects are as varied as they are interesting and complex phenomena are presented in easy-to-understand terms to make them accessible to all or to explain the simple life of stars to small children. Whether in the middle of nature, such as at the Parc national du Mont-Mégantic or in the middle of a city, as in the case of Montréal’s Planétarium, a whole universe is waiting for you. You can learn to situate your favourite constellations, discover new ones and even learn more about strange and intriguing astronomical phenomena. In short, the universe and its wonders are just within reach!
