Now that you have made some crafts you can go out and observe the night sky.
Here are some interesting facts about viewing the night sky.
It is best to see the stars where there are no bright lights. It is hard to view the stars in the city.
Stay outside for about 15-20 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark.
Do not bring any lights! You can bring a light with special red bulbs or cover a regular flashlight with red fabric. Red is the best light source to bring when viewing the night sky.
Unless you are viewing the moon, it is best not to go until it is in the New Moon phase. This is when it is not visual.
When viewing the sun even with special lens never look directly at it!
You don’t have to use an expensive telescope. If you have a good pair of binoculars, they can work very well to see some objects. You can even see some things with just your eyeballs. Or if you have the stuff, you could even make your own telescope.
