Stargazing Top tips:
- Makes sure the moon full in a cloudless sky, so check the moon phases before you pick a spot or set up camp on your decked area.
- Bring a compass, makes constellations easier to spot! To cheat a little, there are lots of apps that can help you find a constellation
- Remember your camera as you will want to document the beauty of the night sky.
- Stargaze at all times of the year, the sky is constantly changing. Having your holiday lodge or static will make that a lot easier.
For those who are beginners at stargazing! The easiest star to find is Polaris or the north star. Heres How!
1. Find the Ursa Major (the plough or big dipper), you cant miss it, it looks like a saucepan.
2. Then follows its tail (or handle) parallel to the star and you will find Ursa Minor (little bear or little dipper) and there it will be.
Tada, you’ll know its the Polaris as its the brightest star in the collection.
