Reach for the stars
Stargazing is the practice of observing the night sky and its contents - from constellations through to planets and galaxies. Stars and other night sky objects can be seen with the naked eye, or seen in greater numbers and in more detail with binoculars or a telescope.

It's a great introduction to a fun new hobby, and even provides a fun way to get the kids outside while doing something educational!
