Dusk Series: Stargaze – 3221
August 10 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
When day becomes night, when nocturnal animals wake, when the sun gives way to the moon and stars… it’s the Dusk Series in Gatineau Park!
Watch the stars and the Perseids from the Champlain or Huron lookout.
A brand new program of the Friends of Gatineau Park, developed in partnership with AstroPontiac the National Capital Commission.
Discover the night sky with an expert stargazer. In addition to getting an amazing view of the stars and distant city lights, you will learn about the constellations, the moon, and the visible planets. The Perseid shooting stars are also part of the program.
A 45 minute indoor presentation will be followed by a stargazing session at the Champlain or Huron lookout. Special after-dark access granted only for this activity.
Transportation will be provided from the Visitor Centre to the lookout.
Please wear weather appropriate clothing.
This activity is recommended for adults and children over 10 years old.
In case of rain or excessive cloud cover, the planned rain date is Sunday, August 11, at the same time.
Registration can be completed here or by phone (please have your credit card information ready when calling).
Our family discount rate (42$ per family | 34$ per member family) is only available by phone and on site.
