Best Stargazing
Best Stargazing

New moon nights – night when the moon is absent from the sky – make for great stargazing.

Here’s a great way to start – look due north after the sun has set and find the Big Dipper constellation [see photo] with its telltale 3-star handle and 4-star dipper.

In the spring, the dipper is at ’12-o’clock’ with the dipper facing down/handle to the right.
