Have you ever gone star or moon gazing? The scientific term for star and moon gazing is astronomy. Astronomy, one of the oldest sciences, is the study of celestial objects, such as stars, galaxies, moons, asteroids and comets. You can observe the stars and galaxies with the naked eye or by using a telescope. Several Baltimore locations offer stargazers the opportunity to use telescopes to observe the sky.
Whether you are an aspiring astronomer, lover of science or simply just wish to try something new, here are a few great locations to view the night sky.
