Have you ever ask yourself about the stars, galaxies and constellations? How pretty they are, how far they are, how many they are or exactly how they are?
Well I was looking for some images just to find sky inspirations to my next felt project and I found some interesting things as:
1. NASA search
NASA it’s the most known organization related to the space right? So why not use the beauty of the science to make things? (that’s what I want, and I will try to do) As google was not giving me the kind of images that I wanted, I entered on NASA’s website, and search for constellations… For some of them they don’t even have one pic and others have a bunch of. They are close images, or frames to report some anomaly as a supernova or a star formation. I just have to say: it worth spend some time just looking how pretty the stars are.
This is an application that you can see which constellations “are on your sky” today. All you have to do is mark where you are or put the coordinates and you’ll be able to see the sky as a planetarium. You can choose the background as day or night, and let the connection lines between the constellations or not. It’s a good tool also to learn the name of the stars.
See what I got from all of it:
