The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - TRAVEL -

1 Be sure to in­form the rel­e­vant se­cu­rity of­fi­cers of your lo­ca­tion and ac­tiv­i­ties, so that they can pa­trol the area and keep an eye out for you as you might be car­ry­ing ex­pen­sive equip­ment.

2 The rec­om­mended lo­ca­tions are open to the pub­lic. But there are many other good lo­ca­tions for stargaz­ing in Sabah. Be­fore you go to th­ese other lo­ca­tions, make sure you ob­tain per­mis­sion from the rel­e­vant parties to en­ter those lo­ca­tions, and do not tres­pass on any pri­vate prop­erty.

3 Go in a group, not alone. You can join the stargaz­ing events there if you wish.

4 To pre­vent neck­ache caused by look­ing up­wards for a pro­longed pe­riod of time, you might want to lie on the ground to stargaze ( un­less you’re try­ing to pho­to­graph the skyscape).
