Plateau Astro

Astronomy workshops, presentations, and mobile planetarium shows in Montréal


Astronomy should be accessible, affordable, and practical.

Even in the middle of a city.

Most people have some fascination with space and the night sky, but most assume you can’t enjoy astronomy when living in a big, brightly-lit city.

There's plenty to see! And I want to show you how...

I love space, photography, and Montréal. My prints and postcards try to merge all three.

Since I was a small kid, I've had an interest in space and the night sky.

In spring 2017, I finally got a telescope and would bring it to Parc Lafontaine almost every clear night. People would ask to take a look and were blown away by what you could see: the craters and fine details of the Moon's surface, the moons of Jupiter, and even the rings of Saturn.

They learned about the night sky – and I learned that I loved teaching it.
