Identifying celestial objects with the naked eye

The first and easiest step into the hobby of Astronomy is to identify the stars with the naked eye. There are many stars which can be identified with the naked eye.

Find a quiet place without any lighting. Look up at the night sky. It may take some time for you to get used to the darkness. The sky may become gradually clearer after a few seconds.

Planets such as Venus and Mars are also visible to the naked eye. Looking up and identifying the easy stars
such as the pole star (Polaris) and constellations such as Orion and the Great Bear can be a good start.
