                    observe the stars in the east.
                    Hold the star chart so that the
                    "East" marking is facing you,
                    as shown in the figure.
                    Now you're ready to match the
                    stars you see in the sky with
                    the constellations displayed on
                    your star chart!

                    above an observer is called the
