Dark Sky Viewing Tips
Check the weather before heading out.
Take along a star chart or download a star gazing app, and a pair of binoculars, or telescope.
Use red cellophane over your flashlight. Red light is less obtrusive than traditional white light, and helps to retain your night vision.
West Beach and the Visitor Centre parking lot are the best car-accessible stargazing locations.
These dates offer the darkest skies for optimum viewing.
