Depending on the time of year and your specific location, you might be able to spot planets like Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. They appear as bright, non-twinkling points of light.
During certain times of the year, you might even be lucky enough to witness meteor showers, such as the Perseids in August or the Geminids in December. Occasionally, you can see satellites pass overhead, appearing as moving points of light. The International Space Station (ISS) is one of the brightest and most easily visible.
With binoculars or a telescope, you can explore deep-sky objects like star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies. The darker skies near Bodega Bay can make these objects more visible.
If you have never experienced the beaches of Bodega Bay at night you are in for a treat. Although many of the beach entrances close at dusk you can still sit in the hills above and enjoy the beautiful night skies.
