Star Gazing Tips
Baja California is a great location for star gazing providing you are away from the few major cities and their light pollution. Papa Fernández is a prime location because it is really far from any major city and with a wide view of the sky, free from obstructions, and with overcast sky a rare thing in the desert.
Ideally bring along a friend to share the wonders of the heavens. The first hour after after dusk is an excellent time to look for low-earth orbit satellites, especially before moonrise. And, don't be surprised if you are startled by a shooting star or two.
Make sure you bring a comfortable chair, your favorite beverage, and then take the time to enjoy yourself.
