Green Your Summer Nights: Stargazing

Night sky The breeze is cool, the air sweet, and loved ones surround you. This week, we bring you suggestions for how to enjoy each other's company in these lighter-later hours between dusk and bedtime.

Tip #2: How to stargaze.

If it's a clear night, lie outside and look into the heavens — AccuWeather will tell you about your local stargazing conditions and, on your smartphone, the GoSkyWatch app will instantly identify the constellations. For more than basic naked-eye work, pick out a good telescope or pair of binoculars and an online beginner's guide to astronomy. The sky changes every night, but stargazing blogs provide daily tips.

Tell us: What's your favorite place to stargaze?
