To use the starmap,
- Turn (rotate) the map until the words Comet Hale-Bopp look right-side up to you. If you are looking
at the map on the computer, you'll have to tilt your head instead.
- Note what constellation the comet is in.
- Find that constellation in your classroom "horizon planetarium" (find which poster has the constellation
that should have the comet in it).
- To find other constellations, turn (rotate) the map until the constellation you are looking for looks right-side
up to you.
