Finding the North Star – Sky Tour Infographic

Take this sky tour infographic with you and the next time you are out camping take a few minutes to conduct a tour of the circumpolar constellations. You’ll be able to show your Scouts two methods of finding the north star and how to identify the constellations along with some astronomy facts and folklore.

Whenever we have good seeing conditions I try to take the time  go through the visible constellations with Scouts, they get pretty good at identifying them once we’ve done it a few times. An astronomy grade green laser pointer is an indispensable tool for pointing out the features of the night sky and finding the north star.
