visit STARDATE for a beginner's guide
to stargazing...

Become a Stargazer

Stargazing often intimidates beginners because the sky itself is so complex. Consider the following:

  • The night sky is divided into 88 constellations, most of which are visible from the United States at different times of the year.
  • On a clear, moonless night, a thousand or more stars are visible.
  • Five of our solar system's eight planets, a few star clusters, a spiral galaxy, and the odd bright comet are visible, too!



Happy lovely summer nights!!!!
