What you'll do

I am bringing my stargazing practice away from the light-polluted city to offer 75 minute tours of the coastal night sky. I will provide my Dobsonian telescope, laser show, knowledge of science, insights from mythic legend, moon chairs and hot drinks.

The show season will run from September-December 2021 as with the most stellar objects including the rings of Saturn and the many moons of Jupiter. Shows happen every Friday & Saturday in this period beginning as the sun sets.

With intimate groups of 10, we will go on a galactic journey that sparks inspiration and invites curiosity. We will start with the basics and slowly transition into deep cosmology as the day transitions into night, allowing easygoing showgoers to relax and chat while creating space for budding astronomers.

>> Show goers must accept that it is impossible to guarantee full clarity, ideal skies, or visibility of certain objects. Shows operate in a marine environment where the weather can change rapidly. <<
