Southern Cross Constellation!
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Piece of black cardboard
- old toothbrush
WHAT TO DO:
1) Grab a black piece of card and using some paint, splatter paint over it using an old toothbrush and toothpick!
2) Leave that to dry
3) You can sprinkle on some glitter to give it that extra sparkle!
4) Now to stick on the stars:
Alpha Crucis or Acrux, at the foot of the cross, is the brightest star of the Southern Cross and did you know, it’s the 14th brightest star in the night sky?
Beta Crucis forms the eastern tip of the crossbar - it is a blue-white giant star
Gamma Crucis, at the top of the cross, is a red-orange star
Delta Crucis, at the western tip, is a blue-white giant star
Epsilon Crucis is the faint fifth star. At 570 light years away, it is the furthest of the five stars from earth!
5) Then connect with string to show the cross!
