Neat, but where is the "you are here" pointer? :smile:

True, but I think it’s fair to say we are in the densest clump of stars although that’s only a guess on my part.

I think Altair 4 is in the same clump too.

Actually there is a sun symbol on the map to denote our position.

Its understandable, they tattooed it to the image and I only noticed when I went looking for Altair 4. I did find Anne Francis though. :-)
