Looking for a gift for a budding astronomer? We’ve put together The Stargazer’s Gift Guide with a range of gift ideas suitable for a mix of budgets and abilities…

Back in March, we launced Science Learning at Home, an online activity hub that enabled people to continue to engage with the science and stories of Jodrell Bank during periods of lockdown. By far, our most popular activities involved stargazing and we’ve been thrilled to see a huge increase in interest in amateur astronomy.

Our monthly Stargazing Guide has seen plenty of readers looking to see what they can spot in the night sky each month. Meanwhile, our article on Getting Started with Stargazing Apps has been really popular. We also have this Beginner’s Guide to Telescopes, and additional resources are listed here, and here.

So, if you’ve got a keen stargazer in your life, why not help them continue their journey of discovery with the gift of astronomy?
