May 26

What We'll See

The night of a Full Moon, as the Sun sets in the West, the Moon rises in the East. When it first appears above the horizon, two phenomenon occur: the Moon appears as a reddish-orange colour and seems impossibly large. On May 26, the Moon will first appear to the right of Montreal's tallest downtown buildings.

How to See It

  • When: May 26, 2021 - 9:09 PM
  • Where: Belvédère Kondiaronk (Mount Royal Chalet)

Unfortunately, on May 26th, Montréal will still be under a 9:30 PM curfew, shortly after the Moon rises. If this were not the case, Plateau Astro would have done a grand event to mark the beginning of Future Skies – but we're still in odd, historic times.

As an alternative, you could go to the Belvédère Kondiaronk the day before on May 25th. The Moon will rise at 7:45 PM, in the general location as drawn in the colouring book.
