When was the last time you stepped outside and just looked up into the sky? On a clear night, spending some time just laying on the ground looking up at the stars and identifying planets can be such an enjoyable, relaxing activity. No money is spent and so much can be gained. It can be a time to bond with a loved one, get more in touch with nature, become more mindful of our place on this planet, and learn a little something about the solar system. There are some fabulous apps out there too to help identify stars and planets. A favorite of ours is Sky Guide
