  • Go to a high altitude: The higher you go, the less light pollution there will be.
  • Avoid light pollution: Light pollution is caused by artificial lights, such as street lights and house lights. Try to find a spot that is away from these lights.
  • Let your eyes adjust: It takes about 20 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the darkness, so be patient.
  • Use a telescope: A telescope can help you see faint objects in the night sky.
