3-D Constellation Kit

3-D Constellation Kit

3-D Constellation Kit

Explore the stars of the Big Dipper and Orion! These photographic plates — six different views of the celestial sphere — were taken with a telescope that has a focal length of 22 inches so they should be viewed from 22 inches away to appear the same size as they look in the sky. Fluorescent orange beads are strung to the plates at their proper distance to simulate the stars, demonstrating to students that not all of the stars in a constellation are the same distance from earth. Constellations include Orion, Ursa Major, Taurus, Cassiopeia, Gemini, and Sagittarius. One to six students can simultaneously complete one portion of the sky (each using one plate). The kit includes: 250 beads (1/8")
• 1 spool of black thread
• 6 photo plates of constellations
• 10 washers
• 1 set of instructions & activities.
