[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Try using the Memo function to block out the rows that are already used by the four fixed stars. Remember, you need to make sure that no two stars share a row in any direction: vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.

    Once you block out the rows already occupied by the fixed stars in each direction, you'll have to clearer idea about where to move the others.

Hint Two
    There are actually two different ways to solve this puzzle. here are some hints to lead you toward one of them:

    Place the first movable star in the third square from the right on the bottom row.

    When placing the other two stars, be sure they don't line up with any other star in any direction.

Hint Three
    Put the second movable star into the squares that's on square over from the left and three squares up from the bottom.

Super Hint
    Put the last star int eh center square. That should do it!

    Once you've got them all in place, however, feel free to check and make sure no two stars are lined up in any direction.
