Since ancient times Humans have looked to the sky, imagining the outlines of shapes from life on Earth, from the configuration of star constellations. Taurus the Bull, Ursa Major; The Great Bear, Orion the Hunter, and Gemini; the Twins.
For This Project
all you need is:
•A large sheet of paper or cardboard.
Look up at the sky at night, can you see any patterns in the stars?
You can make something up from your imagination, a mythical beast, a friendly pet or a favourite tree?
Just draw the outline of anything you like, then draw a star constellation inside your shape.
With the pencil pierce the paper through the star points.
Finally use masking tape to fix the paper to a window.
Watch sunlight flicker, like stars.
