Join the Dark Skies movement! We’re campaigning for light pollution control, so that people can learn to live with the stars again.

This is exatly what i was saying!!
Already joined, tks!

you can see the stars everywhere, just find a place with a little less light and watch the sky for a few minutes, the stars will become more visible after your eyes will get used to the dark. :)

Is there a flat roof you can access near? This helped me a lot: being over street lights is helpful, because your eyes do not get dazzled. This way you can see some of the brighter stars, which is helpful to start recognizing the constellations.

It is a first step. The second step could be just finding a way to go away from the city some nights.

Another helpful tip could be grabbing good binoculars. I bought used binoculars for a very low price. This can help you see some stars you cannot see with the naked eye. It is also helpful to get started with Moon’s features.

For some situations (such as learning the constellations), a telescope is too big (though it is great for star clusters, planets or nebulae), so binoculars fit that bill.
