When you go camping, the focus is so often on what you do will spend your time doing during the day. However, you can make the most of the starry night too if you engage in some astronomy- especially if you have a nice rooftop tent to lay in and get a clear view of the sky in comfort. You can bring along some books that tell the younger ones in your camping party about mythology that includes the gods and different stars in the sky. You can also take along a small telescope that allows them to see the stars up close.
If you live in a large city, then being able to see the lovely stars out at night can be hard. You may forget how gorgeous they really are until you get a chance to go camping for a few days. Getting away from the nights, the buildings, the smog, and more allows you to see that bright sky for what it really is.
You are never too old to delight in the wonders of astronomy while you are out camping. Many adults find this to be relaxing and very enjoyable. You may be able to unwind with a nice cup of coffee as you gaze up at those stars each evening. This may quickly become one of the favorite things you like to do when you go camping. If you don’t know much about astrology, get some books from the library and do some online research before you go camping. Then you will be able to identify the major constellations of the night sky.
