The total measurement for forming the star by going across from point to opposite point in succession will be **5 times the length between two opposite points**. Or just multiply your known measurement along one side of a StarPoint by (5 x 2.618) = 13.09.

## How do you measure a star shape?

Direct imaging. It seems obvious: if you want to measure the size of a star, just point your telescope at it and take a picture. Measure the angular size of the star in the image, then multiply by the distance to find the true linear diameter.

## How do we measure the height of a star?

You can also use your clenched fist as a sextant to measure the height of the moon, star, or planet above the horizon. Your clenched fist, correctly held, will roughly measure off 10-degrees. So you can use your fist to make a reasonable guesstimate of degrees either horizontally or vertically.

## What are the dimensions of a 5 point star?

A regular polygon, like the one that sits in the center of a five pointed star, has equal angles of 108 degrees each. The points of a golden five pointed star are all 36 degrees each, making the other two angles of each point of the star 72 degrees each.

## How do you measure stars with your hand?

Hold your hand with the palm facing outward and thumb fully extended, touching the horizon. Each part of your hand is used to measure a particular altitude. In Hawai’i, the “North Star”, Polaris, is Hokupa’a, meaning “fixed star”. It lies close to the north celestial pole.

## How many dimensions does a star have?

A 3 dimensional 5 pointed star.

## How do you find the center of a 5 pointed star?

First drop three lines such that two pairs of lines are symmetric. Divide. Drop two more lines from the newly created intersections to the opposite vertices, then divide again. The intersection of the two new lines is the center.
