Explore a world hidden just out of sight, and marvel at the wonderful diversity of unfamiliar creatures living right under our noses.

Billions of twinkling lights greet us every night. People throughout history examined those lights and told stories about the patterns and shapes they saw within them. Join us to meet the animals, heroes, and legends of our ancestors still preserved in the sky, and visit those same celestial bodies up close. You may even discover your own story written across the sky.
