To Use the Sky Wheels
Set date and time of night by rotating the Star Wheel
in the Star Holder until your desired time of night lines
up with the desired date.
To find a constellation note
which horizon it is closest to and orient the Star Holder
so that horizon is near is at the
bottom, making that part of the sky to look right-side
Constellations higher in the sky (closer to the zenith)
are closer to the center of the map.
