The Stars. 1000 piece puzzle. 26.5 x 19.25 inches. A breathtaking image of V838 Monocerotis (Nova Red Supergiant). Includes bok globules (early stage of star formation), giant gaseous pillars, blue super giant (Sher 25) and a starburst cluster. This superior quality puzzle will delight and educate all at the same time. Strong high - quality pieces that won't break. Easy fit puzzle pieces. Made from recycled board.
The pieces are thin and do not snap together, nor even hold together when you try to move two or more at once. Similar shapes mean too many pieces fit into multiple places. To much of the puzzle, while not exactly black, is such finely shaded versions of black that even in a strongest light it's hard to see any gradations. Only a few pieces have distinctive shoulders and/or heads. The only thing that kept us going was sheer determination because we liked the picture and once glued together, it looks good, but it took 3 weeks longer than other puzzles of similar size and required magnifying glasses and spotlights to locate fine gradations of color.
I like it.
