LEVEL UP YOUR BACKYARD STARGAZING WITH THESE 3 EASY TIPS
2. Invest in binoculars. You don’t need a fancy telescope to see the constellations, but a cheap pair of binoculars can do wonders to enhance your stargazing experience. The Guardian recommends a pair of 10x50 binoculars, which are available on Amazon starting at less than $30. 3. Download a helpful app. Yes, technology can be your cheat sheet to the stars! Apps like Stellarium, Sky Map, and Star Walk will help you pinpoint your location, spot constellations and planets, and put names to the stars you see. Stargazing is a wonderful fall activity for the whole family. Even if you can’t make it to Jackson Hole, don’t miss your backyard view.
Wyoming is one of the best places on the planet for stargazing. Light pollution is low, smog is nonexistent, and the crisp mountain air shows off extraordinary stars. In Jackson Hole, the nonprofit Wyoming Stargazing has taken advantage of these conditions since 2013. And it has big dreams, including offering up to 100 public astronomy programs every year and building an observatory and planetarium at the Snow King Mountain Resort. Construction on the project already started in the spring of 2022. If you enjoy stargazing (or just loved the recent space photos shared by the James Webb Space Telescope), you should definitely add a visit to Jackson Hole to your bucket list. Wyoming
Stargazing offers free public stargazing programs for tourists and locals alike. In the meantime, use these three tips to enhance your stargazing at home, wherever your backyard might be. 1. Prepare your eyes. If you walk straight from your brightly lit house into your backyard and look up, you’ll miss out on a lot of stars! That’s because your eyes won’t be “dark adapted.” To prepare yourself for some serious stargazing, turn off the lights in your home and stay away from screens for 30 minutes before you head out. (If you absolutely need light during this time, use a flashlight with a red bulb.) This will let your eyes adjust to the dark and give you a better view of the night sky.
