There are three kinds of night sky tours:

Dark Sky Nights

Dark sky nights are when there’s no Moon. The fainter objects such as globular clusters and nebulae show up well against the darker background of a moonless sky.

Moonlit Nights

Moonlit nights are when the Moon is one of the observing targets. The best detail on the lunar surface is seen around half moon phase. Star clusters and bright nebulae will also be visible.

Full Moon Nights

Full moon nights are when a Full Moon occurs on a weekend or in a school holiday period.
