Star Wars Temperature Blankets Project – Movie 1 – Part 6

Half Way There!

Hello everyone! This post is another update on the “A New Hope” Start Wars Temperature Blanket Project I am working on. As you know, I’m making a temperature blanket for each Star Wars film. Yes, that is crazy, especially if you consider that I am using the temperatures  from the years the movies were made. So, as I am starting with the first movie, “A New Hope”, you can expect me to use the temperature readings from 1977.


What’s Up

If you want to read in full how this project works, including the pattern I’m using and updates on each months’ temperatures, you can check them out by searching under the term “star wars” or with the links below.



Done With June

The panel pictured here is for the month of June of 1977. As you can see, I’ve used a lot of pinks for this panel; if you remember, pinks are the hottest temperatures on the temp-scale. The chart below shows how hot it actually was in the film location they had. It was up to 114 degrees!


For the special edition of the movie, they filmed in Yuma, Arizona (USA). So assigning this location to the month of June of 1977, I got the temperatures for that place. To be honest, I’m not sure where this is supposed to represent in the Star Wars universe, but I’m including it nonetheless.


What’s Next?

I’m over the halfway point for this blanket. Well, I should say I’m halfway through the panels. I will have to stick them together in a way that definitively shows which film it is, something I haven’t thought of yet. But it’s a quickly approaching part of the project I’ll need to address!


The next panel will be for July, and it has slightly lower temperatures. So keep an eye out for  that, and good luck on your June panel if you’re following along and making your own blanket!
