Tremblant beneath the Stars
August 13-14, 2010
At the summit of Mont-Tremblant, Quebec
See the Perseid meteor showers from the top of Mont-Tremblant in Quebec's Laurentian mountains at the largest star party in Quebec.
Each year, Tremblant Beneath the Stars, the largest star party in Quebec, offers thousands of novice stargazers a variety of activities to learn more about the beauty of the night sky.
See Jupiter and its moons through the eye of a telescope, with over 50 amateur astronomers and their telescopes on site to answer your questions.
Each evening after sundown, count shooting stars from the dark skies at the summit of the mountain. Take a nature hike to spot the constellations and their legends. Visit the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) Pavilion to learn the secrets of the Perseid meteors.
Be sure to spend some time in the village square and visit the CSA's tent. On Saturday, amateur astronomers from local clubs, as well as the CSA, will make their telescopes available for a special treat—visitors will be able to view the Sun (and possibly even solar flares and sun spots) with the aid of special, safe filters.
