Orion Constellation Project Reveiw

Hi,
Please review my Orion constellation project

Thank you from Milwaukee,

I like that you labeled the stars.

If you wanted to for the 3-d viz, you could get rid of the grid and panes and change the background to black by using:

fig_3d.set_facecolor('black')
fig_3d.grid(False)

fig_3d.w_xaxis.set_pane_color((0, 0, 0, 0))
fig_3d.w_yaxis.set_pane_color((0, 0, 0, 0))
fig_3d.w_zaxis.set_pane_color((0, 0, 0, 0))

But then that erases your labels for the stars. There are other methods of changing text colors in the matplotlib docs and/or a basic search. There’s lots one can do with this mini project.

Good work!

Thank you for the tip. I agree that there is a lot that can be done with that project. One thing that I was unsuccessful in figuring out is how to position the 3d plot so that the view is the same as in the picture. Is there a way to rotate a plot without the mouse?

Hmm, try this?
