As a former zookeeper and an avid stargazer, the theme for my map was an easy choice: animals in the night sky! I only had "space" to fit my favorites (there are over 40 different animal-named constellations). I hope my map will help others better recognize these star shapes when they stare into the cosmos...I feel I know them much better now myself!
This is inspired by my animation movie My Dad the Supernova, a very touching story about an astronomer suffering Alzheimer's disease. He is interviewed by his daughter, who is a radio producer. https://allthingsmoving.com/MyDadtheSupernova

Admittedly no comparison to the AT, but still: 7 possibilities to hike across Switzerland. From the pilgrim trail to the Alpine Passes Trail, which leads through high alpine regions and over glaciers - there is something for everyone. Interested?

My husband is an astronomy professor, so when I saw the Out of This World challenge, I just KNEW I had to submit. I asked him for a list of his favorite things in the universe, and had him write out some notes. A few of these fascinating phenomena, like the Pleiades, are visible with the naked eye; others, like the Eagle Nebula, have been photographed beautifully by the Hubble Space Telescope. Some are named for the constellations in which they appear, while others get their names from the objects they resemble. The universe may be mostly made of empty space, but everywhere you look, there's beauty.
Since I had to cancel all my travelling abroad plans this year, I am doing a lot of hiking in my country. This is the fabulous views you get when hiking my favourite valley: Val di Muggio. It's the southernmost valley in Switzerland: wild, unspoiled + full of history. On clear days, you can see Monte Rosa + the Matterhorn.
This map shows a majority of the constellations visible in the Northern Hemisphere. The constellations closer to the center of the map are called “circumpolar,” and can be seen year-round, while those further away from the center can be found in the sky seasonally (depending on location).
