Constellation Workshop Results

A huge thank you to everyone who attended our constellations workshop! The final set of images were released to the public yesterday – what do you think?

“The constellations we use at the moment have complicated Latin names and often don’t really look like the things they are named for.  We really hope these new creations will help people of all ages develop their interest in space and astronomy, working to inspire the next generation of astronomers to take an interest in the field.” – Emma Willett, Outreach Officer.
