Christmas present – astronomical theme

For Christmas this year, I have had a few presents which have an astronomy theme to them. I thought I would share one of them with you here, as the other still needs setting up to get it working.

I do have many interests, and one of this is solving puzzles. Knowing this and the fact I like astronomy, one of our good friends bought some Astronomy puzzles for me for Christmas. I have not seen these before but they certainly look challenging but very interesting. The two puzzles were Halley’s comet and Hubble’s galaxy, named after famous astronomers whose names have been synonymous with astronomy itself.

Of the two, Halley’s comet puzzle looks the less complicated and has an easier difficulty rating.

There are also interesting facts about Halley and Hubble on the box, which means it is worth keeping the box for storing the puzzle as well.

I have just had a chance to do the Halley’s comet puzzle and initially I was struggling with it and thinking of giving up. But I persisted and before long I managed to get it back together again. I’m well pleased with myself for not giving up. Now I just need to find the time to do the tougher Hubble’s galaxy puzzle. But these are excellent presents to give to someone with an astronomy interest. Nice. I definitely like them, particularly now that I have mastered the Halley’s comet puzzle.
