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.
