Going Star Gazing…
- Wide Open Space Away from City Lights
- Portable Telescope (optional)
- Star Map/Constellation Guide/Starmap App
- Clear Weather
Oh my stars! There’s something truly breathtaking about gazing up at the stars in the clear night sky. Creation shines in all of its splendor. It’s so vast, and so stunning – not bad for millions of balls of gas. And its viewed best on your back on a cozy blanket.
Spotting constellations can be a fun game for all ages. The Little Dipper, the Big Dipper, Orion, and The North Star are a great place to start. Star maps and smart phone apps are great tools for navigating the stars!
Above all, just enjoy a starry starry night together!
