Come join us on an evening cruise departing fromLong Beach, CA. This is a once in a lifetime experience, over the dark unobstructed skies of the ocean. This is our 6th year doing this unique cruise. The night skies out by Catalina Island are very dark skies with many more stars visible than much of the light polluted land locations, but without the mosquitoes and ticks! Many people who live in populated locations live in light polluted night skies and have never seen dark skies completely filled with stars, as you will see on these cruises! Imagine the beauty of the ocean and the stars, as the large boat comes to a stop and shuts down her engines and dims her lights! On the open top deck of the boat, you will be given a narrated tour of the night sky, while meteors shoot across the sky! When the boat stops we use a light pointer to guide you to planets, galaxies, nebula, giant red stars, giant blue stars, star clusters, the Milky Way, and locations of black holes! We outline constellations and discuss the characteristics of the many bright stars visible. With very little light pollution over the ocean, you will have ideal dark sky conditions to view spectacular meteor showers. If you have never seen the Milky Way, our home galaxy, this cruise will be one of the best views you will have, given the dark skies in these waters. 2018 Long Beach, CA dates are below.
