The ultimate Jasper Dark Sky experience
First, explore the world’s largest accessible dark sky preserve – over 11,000 square km – day-and-night on a live, guided virtual tour in our climate-controlled dome theatre.
Our astronomy experts will show you the local aboriginal First Nations constellations, the Northern Lights as they appear from Jasper, and take you out into space on a spectacular interactive ride from hundreds of km above the Rockies to the edge of the universe…all in about 40 minutes.
Then, come outside for our all-weather telescope experience, where you’ll:
- tour of the largest, most powerful telescopes in the Rockies
- recent 4K Jasper sky imagery from our new video telescope
- tips on how to use your DSLR camera to photograph auroras and the Milky Way
- if weather permits, a live guided tour of meteors as they fall, plus objects in our Solar System and deep space as seen through our telescopes
Includes Q&A with a live astronomy expert.
