Total lunar eclipse on September 27

Montréal Space for Life invites you to join the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium team, in person or virtually, to watch the last total eclipse of the Moon that will be visible from Quebec until 2019. The eclipse coincides with the biggest full Moon of the year. Our science interpreters and amateur astronomers from the Société d'astronomie du Planétarium de Montréal will be on hand inside and outside the Planetarium to watch the Earth’s natural satellite during this event.


Bring your cameras/tripods/binoculars (this eclipse is not dangerous to look at directly).

Access to telescopes. Chairs available.

The activity may be cancelled without prior notice if it is overcast or raining. Note that there will be no shows in the Planetarium’s theatres that evening.
