Each month we will have a constellation hunt. You will need to complete the assignment that goes with each one, do the research, read the article, answer the questions, plus try to find the constellation in the night sky. Some are easier to find than others. ~~

Use these free apps to help you find the stars:

Need something just online? Try:

  • The Sky Live - you can adjust the time of day and this may help you to know where to look when you go outside if you don't have a smart phone.

For fun, see if you can spot the International Space Station or satellites (they will look like a dim star moving across the sky).

 

Something wrong with the app I suggested (I don't have an iOS device)or you have another one to add? Send it to me!
