Our Night Sky Matching Game™ is geared toward astronomers from 4-years old and up. Based on the classic game of memory, we have created twenty matching sets of cards that depict some of the best known, and easiest to find northern hemisphere constellations. The images are drawn using our proprietary computer mapping application so they are technically correct with regard to the positions of the stars and their brightness. To add more visual interest we commissioned well-known astronomical artist Garret Moore to create images depicting the popular mythology of each constellation in an engaging and youth friendly way. This game will be a stepping stone to learning to find constellations in the night sky.
