At the heart of the park, observe the celestial sphere and discover what can be found in our cities skies!
A few times throughout the summer, make your way through parc Frédéric-Back at night, looking for stars, planets and other astronomical objects. With a TOHU guide and a Cosmodôme interpreter, learn simple techniques for astronomical observations in an urban setting. If the sky is generous, it might even be possible to spot shooting stars!
The ideal outing to enjoy advice and information by our experts, and an invitation to look up and see the sky above in a different perspective.
