That might be a bit harder if you had stayed up late the night before to gaze at the stars. In the Winter, the nights on Texel are pitch black, so star gazing is highly recommended. Naturally, you can do this from your own window or from the beach, but there are also special evenings at Texel's Volkssterrenwacht when you can see the stars from Ecomare's observatory. You will learning everything you need to know about the stars.
