Amazing Home-Made Starfield Ceiling

Made by Mike Galloway, this amazing custom fiber optic starfield ceiling features over 250 stars with a natural twinkle effect. Check it out:

I initially attempted to recreate constellations, but the perfectionist in me made this a daunting task. If I put up Ursa Minor, it would have to be in proper scale and relation to Draco… which would need to be properly spaced to Hercules and Cygnus and so on. That was way too much work! Instead, we went with a loose-cluster setup and placed the stars randomly. This setup puts out a lot more light than the videos show. We could probably read by this light. Check out the how-to guide on Instructables.com. I hope you all like it.

  1. Nice set-up, but maybe not for a baby's room…

    Isn't it basic human instinct to be scared of the dark, and being outside?

    It is something we unlearn for the better as we get older, but I can't see a baby having a peaceful sleep in that room. I might be wrong, though.

  3. Gives great ideas. I will probably do something similar in my daughter's room.

    It would be nice to have the kind of light the video shows. Seems so real.
