This Starlight Starscope from Levenger looks like a regular flashlight, until you turn it on. The Starscope projects stars and constellations onto a wall or ceiling. You can select a view of the northern, eastern, southern, or western sky. Rotate the neck of the Starscope and the star patterns change to show how that portion of the sky looks at various times of the year. The light is 5.5 incles long and uses 3 AAA batteries – the first set is included. The Starlight Starscope will make a great gift for the amateur astronomer. It’s $49 at Levenger.
