The Finger Lakes area has a reputation for being one of the most beautiful places to spend a relaxing day. But once evening falls that doesn’t mean that you are left with nothing to see at your Finger Lakes Vacation Rentals . Quite the contrary, there is a lot of beauty that is still visible by simply looking up at the night sky. Stargazing is one of the oldest activities engaged in by humans from all walks of life. For centuries the stars have provided guidance and inspiration for astronomers, long distance travelers, scientists, storytellers and people that wonder what is out there in the universe beyond. And a Finger Lakes rental offers the perfect opportunity to star gaze over the Finger Lakes.
On your visit here to the Finger Lakes all that is needed to enjoy the wonderful constellation is a clear night sky and a pair of astronomical binoculars. Of course, you can always see stars with the naked eye, but it’s so much more fun to get a close up view of those twinkling lights. Each star has its own purpose. Some stars are part of a larger constellation that forms a famous shape, like the Big Dipper. If you want to learn more about the planets and stars you can pay a visit to the Corning Community College Planetarium. A planetarium show gives you an opportunity to gaze at the amazing night sky through a dome. You can also view the stars through a large telescope.
The Cornell Astronomical Society hosts public viewing nights (usually Fridays) at the Fuertes Observatory. Groups can arrange for a special educational session where actual astronomy classes are taught. These are great options for families that want something out of the ordinary to do.
Another fun way to enjoy the stars while renting a Finger Lakes lodging property is to have a star gazing night. Choose a night that is going to be clear of clouds. Make sure the moon isn’t going to be full, because it can obstruct the view. Get some snacks together and turn off the TV and all the lights in the home. Everyone can get comfortable and enjoy an evening of simply kicking back and watching the stars.
Enjoying the amazing display of stars that appear over the Finger Lakes doesn’t have to be strictly an educational or group experience. A star-filled sky is the perfect backdrop for a romantic evening spent at one of our Skaneateles lake rentals. Imagine sitting out by the lake on a starry evening with the one you love. As you share a bottle of your favorite Finger Lakes wine, you can see the stars twinkling above. These are the special moments that allow you to unwind and truly appreciate each other. Stargazing is perfect for lovers, and when vacationing in this idyllic setting many couples rekindle that special magic.
