The Manicouagan River has its source in one of the largest meteorite craters in the world. Originally, only the river at the bottom of the valley was visible from the air. With the filling of the valley behind the dam, the Manicouagan reservoir, also called the eye of Quebec, is now perfectly visible from space. We find in its center theRené-Levasseur Island engineer who worked at the Manic complex. The reservoir has an area of 1,973 km2 and a volume of 135 billion cubic metershttps://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centrale_Manic-5
