Compass at Night

Page 4

Try this 'Star' method:

 Pick out a bright star.

Look along a stick, like sighting a rifle.

Prop your elbows to keep them steady.

After a minute or two, the star will have moved: 

            If the star has moved LEFT: You are facing NORTH.         

            Star to RIGHT: South           

            Star UP: East


            Star DOWN: West     


OR :Place a stick in the ground

Mark with a stone or scratch the end of the shadow.

From time to time during the day, mark the end of the shadow.
