CHALLENGE OVERVIEW

In this create your own challenge, we are challenging other Nature Challengers (that is entirely too many uses of the word challenge) to do a little stargazing.

 

CHALLENGE STEPS

This challenge can be done anywhere! Even your own backyard, though we recommend getting away from city lights for the most spectacular views.

1. Download a (free!) app on your phone that allows you to identify the stars above you (we used SkyView Free, but there are numerous options).

2. Discover at least three constellations above you. Discuss whether you can "see" the item they're supposed to be (ex: can you see the scorpion of Scorpius?)

3. "Connect the stars" to name your own constellation! We identified Legumius, the Big Bean
