Description


A deck of cards to show you how and when to spot 40 constellations across the sky, explaining the key features to look out for as well as the myths and legends behind each one.

Look up and take a journey through the stars

From the twelve constellations in the zodiac family or asterisms such as the Big Dipper and the Great Square of Pegasus, to the lesser-known formations of the Chameleon or the Sculptor, the night sky holds stories and legends that have fascinated humans for thousands of years.

Star Gazing is a deck of 40 illustrated cards, each one showing a different constellation, plus a 16pp booklet introducing star gazing and constellation spotting. The deck will explore the origins and myths associated with each constellation, guide you on how to locate each one in the night sky and the best time of year to spot them, as well as key features to look out for and interesting facts about the stars.

Informative yet beautiful, this little pack brings the stars to life and allows you to explore the science and the history of the night sky through the constellations.
