Greetings to all!

As a small experimentation project, the San Agustín Astronomy Club, developed a small experiment for the construction of academic material and astronomical observation,

Construction of Planisphere

The experiment consists of the following materials:

  • Planisphere prints (coated paper) and front / rear covers designed by the club.
  • Tacks and insurance
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Glue

Likewise, with instruction from the teacher, the experiment was developed with a series of steps for the assembly of the planisphere.
