    Navigation and the Stars

    Ancient Polynesians traveled great distances across the Pacific Ocean, navigating without GPS, maps or high-tech equipment. For direction, they looked to clues from nature, such as:

    • The rising and setting of the sun
    • The position of the stars and moon
    • Environmental factors, like ocean swells, winds, currents and birds

    The stars played a vital role in early sea travel. Stars, unlike planets, remain in the same position throughout the year. Stars near the horizon are guiding stars, providing seafarers a sense of direction.
