How To Make A Constellation Scope

Written By: happycamper

Have you ever looked up at the night sky and wondered what stars belong to which constellation? Or wondered what the story was behind each constellation? Here I will teach you how to make your own constellation scope so you can see what different constellations look like. The easiest to start with will be zodiac constellations. Whether you are a Capricorn, Taurus, Leo, or a Cancer I will have cuts outs for each so you can print out so you can use for your constellation scope.

Materials needed:constellation scopes

* Toilet paper roll (without the toilet paper on it)

* Pencil

* Constellation cutouts

* Tape or Glue

* Flashlight


1) Print out your constellation.

2) Tape or glue your constellation to the end of your toilet paper roll.

3) After it is secured on the roll use your pencil to gently poke out stars (black dots) on the constellation.

Now you are done and can use your flashlight to shine on one end of your scope to project onto a wall or you can look through it. Go outside and see if you can find your constellation up in the sky. If you like, you can color and name the outside of your scope so you remember which one it is for later.
