Since humans have been able to look up at night, we’ve tried to make sense of the shape of stars in the sky. Early attempts created constellations, shapes created by star patterns, revealing the gods travelling across the heavens. Today looking at the constellations reveals different information. When Hubble peered into the Big Dipper it created the deep field image, an area of blackness to the eye that contains hundreds of galaxies dating back billions of years. The belt of Orion holds one of the most beautiful nebulas ever observed. This show will chose three constellations and see what treats lie within.
