More About What Star? by Brian Jones
 
 
 
Overview

Constellations are groupings of stars that resemble a pattern when an observer looks up into the night sky. Ancient civilizations designated 88 constellations, giving them names corresponding to mythological objects or individuals that they felt the star patterns represented.

Almost all the constellations have some legend associated with them. Most of these are mythological figures who were given a place in the sky by Greek gods. These include King Cepheus, his wife Cassiopeia, and daughter Andromeda, Hercules, Perseus, Pegasus, and more.

This guide gives an easy reference to each constellation, its location, its form, and the mythology surrounding it.
