Six ways to explore the night sky with these astronomical deals | The Sun

Aug 19, 2022

AS darkness falls earlier and the nights are still warm, it’s a great time for stargazing.

Find your way around the night sky with my easy tips for both adults and children.

TRI OUT TELESCOPE: It doesn’t need to cost the Earth to encourage a love of the universe.

For just £15 you can get a Science Mad telescope, with a table-top tripod included, from The Works, which mini space explorers will love.

’APPY STARGAZING: Download free apps to help you navigate the night sky.

I like the free versions of Stellarium, and Star Tracker, which will help you identify stars, constellations and planets.
