CONSTELLATIONS

 

Constellations are names for groups of stars that appear to form shapes in the sky. They were given their names many hundreds of years ago to help us remember which stars are which. We use constellations to divide up the sky; finding one can help us find another because constellations move so slowly that, in our lifetime, they will always be found in about the same place.

 

Some famous constellations are

The Big Dipper (Ursa Major or the Great Bear)
Little Dipper (Ursa Minor or the Little Bear)
Orion

Cassiopeia

The Pleiades (Seven Sisters)
