What happens on the day?
On arrival at your chosen dark sky location, you’ll meet at an indoor location where you’ll be given an introductory briefing on stargazing. Your experience will begin with a guide showing you the night sky with a laser pointer.
Unlike observatory events, you’ll each be provided with your own pair of astronomy binoculars for the evening, meaning you won’t have to queue for equipment. This way, you’ll be observing, learning about and enjoying the night sky for the whole event.
You’re free to bring your smartphone or tablet, so you can learn more about how to use apps to help you plan stargazing sessions independently. You’ll also be given a free information sheet and a printed star chart for the month of the event, enabling you to remember what you’ve seen.
