First you have to ask your parents if you can stay up later than usual on a clear, summer evening.
When it’s really dark, go outside (with your parents' permission) and look at the stars.
If you live in a city, it can be hard to see the stars, but some are always visible. Did you know the stars in the southern hemisphere are different to those in the northern hemisphere?
Lie on your blanket and look at the constellations in the night sky. Take out your smartphone or tablet and astronomy book to help you identify what you’re looking at.
Snacks always make activities extra fun. And if you happen to see a shooting star, make a wish!
Do this: Try to find the Southern Cross and Orion’s Belt, some of the most popular constellations. The Southern Cross, or Crux, is four main stars in the shape of a cross and is part of the bigger constellation Centaurus. Orion’s Belt is also known as Three Kings or Three Sisters, and is a line of three bright stars called Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka.
