Moonlight assuming you get a clear sky there is so much to see even without optical aid. eg the milky way, the moon, some of the planets, meteors and satellite trails to name just a few. With a pair of half decent binoculars you can see so much more but its not just the seeing but realising that what you are seein can be so far away, so huge, so small so luminous etc. etc. This time of year is good as it is dark early in the evening but COLD. Most important, warm clothing and a wooly hat is the order of the day or rather night. early evening atm Orion is very evident and you can see the orion nebula naked eye. lots of stars being born there. if you wish to learn and see how it looks anytime download a FREE planetarium suite called STELLARIUM. It is one of the best and quite easy to use once you have set your co ordinates. (nearest town) Good luck
Hope you don't mind me quoting you - thought I would share this post with your advice in.
p.s. (Attempting to) download STELLARIUM as I type...
Apparently (according to Wikipedia) the official name of the moon is...The Moon. As this is really just a description of what it is, it's a shame that as we have discovered other moons orbiting around other planets that we can't call it by a proper name such as Luna or Selene?
