Cotton Candy Clouds

Submitted by: Guillaume Poulin at Fri Jul 23 22:49:01 2004 UTC

A few minutes after sunset, clouds over Mont-Mégantic were litten from under and had this cotton candy look. The reddish color is caused by the diffusion of the sun's light by the thicker atmosphere near the horizon.

Quelques minutes après le coucher du soleil, les nuages au-dessus du Mont-Mégantic étaient éclairés par dessous leur donnant cette apparence de barbe à papa. La couleur rougeâtre est causée par la diffusion de la lumière par l'atmosphère plus épais près de l'horizon. Mont-Mégantic, Québec, Canada

Starring at the Sun...

Submitted by: Guillaume Poulin at Thu Jun 10 16:36:01 2004 UTC

On the morning of June 8th 2004, we were more than ten people from the Astrolab of Mont-Mégantic starring at the Sun, all thrilled to have the chance to watch the historic transit of Venus on top of Mont St-Joseph.

Au matin du 8 juin 2004, nous étions plus d'une dizaine d'employés de l'Astrolab du Mont-Mégantic à regarder le Soleil, tous excités d'avoir la chance de voir le transit de Venus au somment du Mont St-Joseph.

June 8th Venus Transit Sunrise

Submitted by: Guillaume Poulin at Thu Jun 10 16:15:01 2004 UTC

This is the wonderfull sunrise we had on the morning of the Venus transit. Unfortunately, these clouds rolled in front of the Sun and blocked our view of the historic event.

Voici le merveilleux lever de Soleil auquel nous avons eu droit au matin du transit de Vénus. Malheursement, ces nuages se sont déplacés devant le Soleil pour nous priver d'une partie du spectacle historique du passage de Vénus entre la Terre et le Soleil.

This is a picture of the planet Venus passing between the Earth and the Sun. Taken only 1 minute after sunrise, you can clearly see the sun's image is crushed by the thick atmosphere above the east horizon.

Moon Corona

Submitted by: Guillaume Poulin at Mon Apr 26 03:40:01 2004 UTC

This picture shows a moon corona and planet Saturn its left. This phenomenon is caused by the diffraction of light by little water droplets from a thin cloud passing in front of the moon. For more information atmospheric optics, visit this site: http://www.sundog.clara.co.uk/atoptics/phenom.htm

Cette photo montre une couronne lunaire ainsi que Saturne à sa gauche. Ce phénomène est causé par la diffraction de la lumière par les petites gouttes d'eau d'un nuage mince qui passe devant la lune.

Mercury and the Moon

Submitted by: Guillaume Poulin at Tue Mar 23 04:31:01 2004 UTC

A rare sight: Mercury standing next to the Moon. Because Mercury orbits very close from the Sun, it can ony be seen soon after sunset or before sunrise. During this evening, Merury, Venus, Mars, Saturne and Jupiter could all be seen at the same time with naked eye.

Phénomène plutôt rare: Mercure tout près de la Lune. Puisque Mercure tourne très près du Soleil, on peut seulement la voir peu après le coucher du Soleil ou encore avant son lever. Lors de cette soirée, Mercure, Vénus, Mars, Saturne et Jupiter pouvaient toutes être vues en même temps à l'oeil nu.

This is a picture of me looking at Jupiter on the best winter night for astronomy we had for a long time. The building behind is the "Astrolab", an astronomy activity center dedicated to the general public. It is part of the Mont-Mégantic Park, where is also the only research observatory in the Québec province. Check out these links:
