Sterland, just outside of Sutherland has stargazing sessions every night, with the cold air providing excellent viewing of the Milky Way. The show starts at 8pm and lasts just over two hours.
An indoor presentation kicks off proceedings and explains the constellations of the universe. After the presentation one is directed out to the Muisbos Amphitheatre and with the use of a laser given an explanation of how to find South, the Magellan Clouds, Southern Cross and other stars.
All relevant constellations, stars, planets and objects observed are explained before looking at them through the telescope and each person gets enough time to enjoy the object to be seen.
