The Constellation Mug – learn about the stars

Constellation Mug

For some of us, the day starts before the sun rises. The moon is still in the sky, and the stars are visible. It’s sometimes nice to grab a mug of coffee and take in the morning air. While you know there are constellations in those little twinkling lights, it’s hard to remember what’s what beyond Orion’s Belt.

If you wish you had a better memory for that sort of thing and want a cheat sheet, then you’re going to love the Constellation Mug. At first glance, this mug appears to resemble the night sky, with a myriad of white dots in a chaotic array. However, when hot liquid warms the mug, the dots will connect, showing you eleven constellations. Now Hercules, Cassiopeia, Scorpius and more will get a little of the spotlight, and perhaps a place in your memory, as seeing this mug every day might help the placement of these patterns stick in your mind a bit more.

This nifty mug can hold up to 10 ounces of whatever beverage might tickle your fancy. While the idea is awesome, you’ll really have to love this mug as you can only hand wash it. Putting it in the dishwasher over and over again will fade the design. This is capable of going in the mircowave though, as it is all too common for our drink to go cold while we’re working or getting ready to leave the house in the morning. This is going to cost you $12.95, and is only available in the US.

Available for purchase on uncommongoods
