Equipment Needed

- Plan the equipment needed for a naked-eye observation session (red torch, clipboard, pencil/rubber, warm clothes)

Remember it gets cold at night - even in the summer. It is important you wrap up warm. Remember to record observations using paper (it's easier to use a clipboard) and pencil. You might need to make corrections so bring a rubber with you!

 

Lastly you should bring a torch with a red light. A normal white beam torch will make it difficult for your eyes to readapt to the dark but a red torch makes it easier for you and others to do this.

 

Remember to stay safe when observing and go with a trusted adult outside your home.
