A Complete Constellation List
With Links To Printable Constellation Star Maps
And Some Constellation Mythology



This constellation list has all eighty-eight official constellations. Astronomers use the constellations to divide the sky into sections to make it easier to find celestial objects.

For the backyard stargazer though, that's you and me, the constellations are mythological pictures of ancient people, creatures, animals, and shapes.

Theses images are imaginary and you must mentally "connect the dots".

The Greeks, Romans, babylonians and most if not all ancient cultures all viewed the night time sky and made up constellations but they often saw different pictures based on their own constellation myths.
