Look around you. Signs of the cosmos are everywhere, embodied in everything from vast galaxies to tiny snails. The cosmos is deeply embedded in our DNA.
Physics applies to everything – big and small. Every civilization tells tales of the night sky. Artists have used the sky for hundreds of years as inspiration to craft pictures of the heavens.
EXPERIENCE THE AWE OF THE NIGHT SKY
The absence of light pollution and the abundance of clear nights make Bliss & Stars a great location for stargazing and astrophotography. Naked eye stargazing with beautiful backdrops allows for the most romantic and memorable moments. Or, for a better view, our observatory’s massive telescopes can take you on a journey into deep space.
The Bliss & Stars Observatory has 4 permanent telescopes.
We deliver experiences of all shapes and sizes, such as astronomy photography courses, introductory to advanced stargazing experiences, and Star Bathing Retreats.
