The Star Jar contains strips of paper cut from pictures of stars taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. On the reverse side of these strips informational facts are displayed in order to teach people about the stars they observe from far away. A spiritual connection is then established as an origami star is formed from this strip of paper and placed in the jar using the instructions found in the booklet attached to the jar. This project establishes a connection between the scientific aspects of stars and the spiritual connections humanity has formed with them.
