    Hot Tub Stargazing

    Relaxing in your Beachcomber Hot Tub under a clear night sky is one of the best ways to relieve stress. It allows you to forget about work, while reconnecting with nature and those around you. While soaking in your tub, it can be fascinating to look up into the night sky and catch glimpses of the constellations that make up our galaxy.

    Below are a few descriptions of some of the most popular constellations.

    BACKYARD STARGAZING GUIDE

    Big Dipper

    Latin for Water Carrier

    The Big Dipper is potentially the most famous group of stars. It is part of the constellation called Ursa Major. The beginning of the formation is very linear, while it finishes with the famous dip.

     

    Little Dipper

    Latin for Smaller Bear

    The Little Dipper is famous for containing Polaris, the North Star. This constellation is very similar to the Big Dipper, as they both have the same general look to them. Both have 3-4 stars that create the handle, then 4-5 that create the scooper. Although this formation is best viewed in June, in the Northern Hemisphere it can be seen for a large majority of the year.

     

    The Hunter

    Latin for mythological Greek hunter

    The Hunter is one of the largest and most recognizable constellations. It is most known for its 3 horizontal stars that create Orion’s Belt. The rest of the constellation form a quadrangle, with two other stars that create his head and bow. Unlike some other constellations, The Hunter is viewable around the world at certain points during the year.

     

    Leo

    Latin for Lion

    Leo is one of the few constellations that somewhat looks like its namesake, hence it is also one of the easiest constellations to find. A prominent backwards question mark forms the head and chest, while the rest of the body is formed by a long triangle that is turned on its side.
