Magical Mug Reveals Dazzling Constellations When Filled with a Hot Drink

Constellation Mug

Nothing says “rise and shine” quite like a cup of coffee—and the Unemployed Philosophers Guild has found a stellar way to prove it. Taking this concept to new heights, the quirky studio has created a constellation coffee cup with an out-of-this-world twist.

When empty, this mug looks like a simple rendition of a starry sky. Once filled with a warm drink, however, luminous lines begin to connect the tiny white stars, forming distinctive configurations and eventually transforming the cup into a constellation map.

The constellation mug features 11 of 88 formations, including Hercules, Andromeda, and zodiac signs like Sagittarius and Scorpio. Each one is easily identifiable and clearly labeled, making this portable planetarium an excellent way to get acquainted with the stars—all while you sip your favorite drink.

This dazzling creation is one of the many quirky coffee cups designed by the Unemployed Philosophers Guild. You can find this mug and more—including cups inspired by Frida Kahlo and Bob Ross—in the My Modern Met Store.
