For me sitting back and enjoying a star-filled sky is extremely relaxing. Taking time to observe a beautiful dark starry night is very enjoyable. Often it is tough to get a clear night along with no outside light, which can reduce your viewing ability. So where do you go here in Ocean County to view millions of stars and comfortably?

So where is this place I'm referring to here in Ocean County for the best "star gazing"? It's located in Toms River, have you guessed yet? If you guessed that it's the Robert J Novins Planetarium you would be right.

Located on the campus of Ocean County College, the Robert J Novins Planetarium is a fantastic place to not only see millions of stars but to learn about our universe and maybe even beyond. It's a wonderful experience and a great way to see our skies.
