The dark skies of La Verendrye Wildlife Reserve


The Mecca of amateur astronomers in Quebec, La Verendrye Wildlife Reserve offers us the darkest sky that we can find in the province of Quebec. We set up on the edge of an old landingstrip, near Lake Lucie, about a hundred kilometers from the nearest light.

Here, waiting for the sunset in September 2018 with my good friend Jean Legros. In the background, Normand Demontigny’s camper all set up for astronomy outings.
