Night Sky Table construction:

Design Interface

To add a Star (pinhole), click on a black space on the table. To remove one, right click on it. You are allowed a maximum of 21 Stars per table.

To add a cloud (piece), click on the edge of the table and select "Add a Piece...". Click and drag to move the cloud, or hold right click to rotate it. To delete a cloud, drag it to the edge of the table. Clouds can be rotated by "right click, hold, and drag".

Once all the stars are covered by clouds, you can open the piece for judging.

Solving (User:Wrel)

  • All stars must be obscured by clouds.
  • Clouds can be rotated by "right click, hold, and drag".
  • You can left-click and drag clouds to actually move them.
  • There doesn't seem to be any requirement to get the clouds in any configuration - the only goal is to hide all of the stars. As far as I can tell, this means that there can be multiple solutions for each puzzle.
  • I start by dragging all of the clouds so that none are on top of any other and I can see the shapes I'm working with.
