There's nothing like an evening spent out back watching the sky. Whether you're curious about viewing the space station, counting satellites, learning the constellations, or perhaps hoping to view a UFO, the night sky awaits you.
My first consideration in making a yard that is friendly for the night watching is to be sure that you are down low, out of the light of any streetlights. You can certainly head out in your car to a lonely stretch away from the city, but if you want convenience, I suggest lounge chairs. And, if you have friends or family viewing too, put the lounge chairs in a wagon wheel formation so everyone views a different portion of sky.
