ASL: How to Sign About the Night Sky
Enjoying the serene beauty of the night sky is one of nature’s most wonderful pleasures. Only one thing is better — having your new Deaf friends along to take in the view. Because American Sign Language is a visual language and the night sky is a visual phenomenon, it’s fitting to see how these two awesome pleasures come together.
The signs listed here are fun to learn and fun to sign because there’s movement involved — a shooting star, an eclipse of the moon, and a twinkling, star-filled sky are only a few examples.
English: Did you see the shooting star?
Sign: FINISH — SHOOTING STAR — SEE— Q
English: The eclipse was red.
Sign: ECLIPSE — RED — TRUE (affirmation)
