completed by: Timothy Lanzi

mentors: Torsten Rahn, René Küttner, Dennis Nienhüser

In this task

the stars plugin has been extended to display constellation lines. So far it only contains the big dipper, Cassiopeia and Ursa Minor.

This task is about adding all of these to the constellations.dat file:

  • Cancer (german: "Krebs")
  • Gemini ("the twins", german "Zwillinge")
  • Cetus (german: "Walfisch")
  • Aries (german: "Widder")
  • Pisces (german: "Fische")
  • Aquarius (german: "Wassermann")
  • Capricornus (german: "Steinbock")
  • Sagittarius (german: "Schütze")
  • Scorpio (german: "Skorpion")
  • Libra (german: "Waage")

Important: please use the constellation lines from this Url as a reference.
