We have compiled this guide to help you choose a constellation for your Star Gift Set
 

There are 88 constellations that make up the celestial sphere. Each constellation represent a segment of the sphere. Below are some suggestions we have made to represent particular events though you may find that some of these constellations represent a more personal meaning than we have suggested.

We have also divided the constellations by location and time of year when best viewed. Some constellations can only be seen in the southern hemisphere – all areas of the earth below the equator. The United Kingdom, Europe, Asia and North America are all in the northern hemisphere and South America, Australia and New Zealand are all in the southern hemisphere. Many constellations can be seen in both hemispheres depending on the time of year.

If you need help deciding which constellation to choose for your Star Gift Set, just call or email us and we will be happy to help.
