About

Aurora Nights is an entertaining educational game for learning to identify the constellations.

In Aurora Nights, you need to connect stars in the individual constellations to discover them on the global star field and learn facts and myths behind them.

Have you ever wanted to be able to find the constellations in the night sky? With the help of spaced repetition (a learning technique that incorporates review of previously learned material), you'll be able to recognize different constellations, and a bit of practice would help you to find those constellations in the sky.

If you just love astronomy and stars, or find it interesting that the earliest depiction that has been linked to the constellation of Orion is a prehistoric mammoth ivory carving that was discovered in a cave in the Ach valley in Germany in 1979, then you'll enjoy the game.

Features:
- Discover the 35 constellations of the Northern Hemisphere;
- Mini encyclopedia of constellations facts and myths;
- Get three stars on each constellation in order to remember them;
- Steam Achievements and Trading Cards.

Aurora Nights reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Very very very difficult ... I have to say in advance that I am a passionate amateur astronomer, that is, at least find and identify the Constellations of the NORTHERN Hemisphere "from the FF," in the real Night Sky;) So What was closer than looking at Aurora, costs practically nothing ... Nevertheless, in its current State I have to COME to NO RECOMMENDATION, first The Short form: Pro:-Nette, coherent Graphics-RELAXED atmosphere Con:-Much (VIEL!!) too little Content-A Three-year-old finds the right Stars as they are-Much (VIEL!!) too Little Background Information on the Constellations-did I mention the lack of Content? I do not find out how some Reviewers could spend over 3h in this "game," possibly falling asleep at the Start screen, the Constellations Were clicked through in less than an Hour En Detail: Through you fat, luminous stars, it is on the one hand Extremely easy to click together a Constellation, on the other hand it almost has zero to do with the real Starry sky where the Stars do not stand out in this way but have fixed Brightness-so you won't get a real Gain in orientation here. Unfortunately, the Background Information on the Constellations is far too short and also completely past the Topic. Of Course, a brief Demolition of the namesake Myths is also part of it, but ONLY that is more for the Feet ... I expect: Known Space (Deepyky) Objects that can be found in this Constellation (Andromeda Galaxy To name a prominent Example). A List of at least (!) the Messier objects within the Constellation Is, in my opinion, mandatory. What would have to happen that I would recommend the Game: 1.) Another Type of search Game: Not unrealistically bright bright Asterisks that have nothing to do with the real Sight, but rather a more large-scale Image of the Star Sky around the Constellation And then find the right Constellation by Clicking with the real Brightness. In the second Step you could even see the important (partly with the naked eye!) Leave fog Objects and Star Clusters in the Constellation. 2.) Essentially more Information in the "Encyclopedia" it does not deserve the Name at the moment, there is More in the Google Preview when you are looking for the Constellation conclusion: Sorry, I am a big astronomy fan, Music and Grafistil talk to me but unfortunately that looks From as if this had been cobbled together with goodwill but little Enthusiasm on two Evenings. Please download the free Opensource Project STELLARIUM. No Game in the original Sense but by the Factor 1.000.000 more extensive, lovingly of a large Opensource community constantly in the works and even as a User in addition to thousands of Possibilities from the Factory, you also have great Influence through your own "Mods" in the Form of specially created "Mods." Landscapes (E.g. the Meadow behind the House, the Garden, whatever) and even Objects and Photos can be inserted ...
