Stargazing (To See the Stars in the UK version) is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter.

Puzzle

US Version

It's not safe to look directly at the sun, so people use lenses that can filter light, like the two pieces of glass below.

These pieces of glass are good not only for looking at the sun, but also for seeing stars. Can you use these two pieces to see a star? The bigger, the better!

US Version

It seems these two pieces of glass can be used to see a star even during the daylight hours.

You don't even need to point them at the sky. Focus on the shapes of the glass pieces.

UK Version

It seems these two pieces of glass can be used to see a star even during the daylight hours when stars aren't normally out. You don't even need to point them at the sky. The important thing is to focus on the shapes of the pieces of glass.

US Version

You already know the shapes of the pieces of glass are important, but it's also worth noting that this trick wouldn't work with bricks or metal sheets of the same shape.

You need to make use of some special property of the glass pieces to solve the puzzle.

You already know the shapes of the pieces of glass are important, but it's also worth noting that this trick wouldn't work with bricks or metal sheets of the same shape. You need to make use of some special property of the coloured glass pieces to make it work.

If all goes well, you should see a green star. What do you think you could do with a piece of yellow glass and a piece of blue glass in order to see a green star?

US Version

Arrange the two pieces of glass so that they overlap.

The two sharp prongs extending from the blue piece of glass should be the two points of a five-pointed star that face down. The one sharp prong on the yellow piece of glass will be the top of the star, pointing upward.

Try arranging the glass with these points in mind.
