Montréal is celebrating astronomy and the exploration of the Moon with a diverse and exciting daylong event that’s sure to put stars in your eyes! The Planétarium is teaming up with several partners to bring you a wide variety of free activities.

The program includes arts and crafts for all age groups, presentations, an astrophotography exhibit, information booths, workshops, a close-up look at the sun and more. The festivities will continue into the evening with a chance to view the moon and other heavenly bodies through a telescope.

Don’t miss the presentation by Canadian Space Agency astronaut David Saint-Jacques on future lunar exploration missions. Places for this activity are limited. Reserve your seat here. However, his presentation will also be screened outdoors, weather permitting and will be broadcast on social networks.
