Under a night sky unblemished by light pollution, students stargaze and learn about the cosmic expanse beyond. Outback campers will see the night sky and learn about navigating by stars, enjoy a tour of the seasonal constellations, and hear the myths and legends of these celestial bodies. Students will be able to sit back and soak in the Milky Way Galaxy and expand their astronomical knowledge, and perhaps spot a shooting star or two.
After a long day of travel, students will sit back and enjoy the stars. Sharing the knowledge they have about the night sky and with the instructor adding more they will talk about the constellation they see, planets and their movement as well as the moon.
