Star Gazing Constellation Guide

I can point to the big dipper … and that’s about it! When it comes to star gazing, I need as much help as I can get. We’ve created a Star Gazing Constellation Guide to help every beginning star gazer navigate the heavens.

DIY Constellations

If the stars aren’t cooperating {curse you, clouds!}, create your own constellations with our flashlight star gazing cheat sheet. Simply cut out each circle, glue it to the bottom of a cupcake liner, punch a small hole in each little star (I used a pin), and tie or tape the liner onto the end of your flashlight. TA-DA! Turn on your flashlight and let the your star gazing date night begin!
