- Lie down, on your back, in the grass on a clear night and look at the stars. This works best if you are not in an urban environment with lots of lights. Our family love doing this every year when we go camping. "When it is dark enough, you can see the stars." Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
- "you can start observing with nothing more than your eyes. If you decide you want a better look into space, you can buy a pair of binoculars or a telescope."
