Ever wondered if you were the only kid who watched the moon and the stars from the car window wondering if they were following you or you are the one who is following them? Don’t worry, you are not alone! Stars have always been interesting to mankind since long ago.
Why are stars important?
During the dark ages, stars have helped humans navigate through Earth. Those tiny shinning things floating in the sky gave people the light they needed to live. They also acted as compasses and maps before that kind of things existed. Stars are also one of the reasons for our existence on Earth. Without that big star (the Sun) Earth would have been just a big rock covered in ice.
The very first star map
And for that great importance of stars, astronomers back then created sky maps or star charts for people to know time and date through constellations. The oldest recognized representation of a star map with the whole constellations is the ancient Egyptian figure placed in the tomb of Senenmut. Following the Ancient Egyptians came the Greeks and then the Chinese and many other cultures that created star maps and believed in them.
