September 26, 2011 by Sue Rosenthal

Nature doesn't disappear when the sun goes down--there's a whole universe out there to explore after dark! If you don't have your own telescope, you can look at stars, planets, and other astronomical objects through big telescopes at observatories and smaller, portable telescopes at star parties or see them in dazzling indoor planetarium shows. People who share their love of astronomy and stargazing with others are friendly by nature.
