Once nomadic people used stars in the sky to know their own locations and regarded the stars as a guide during their migrations around the word. Nowadays electrical navigation systems have supplanted this ancient knowledge.

At the end of this project a lot of stars would appear on the earth, that would lead people's journeys in their lives.
