What Is a Constellation?

Let's Find Out!

To bring some semblance of order to the vast night sky, ancient astronomers assigned patterns to the stars that shown around them. These became known as constellations. This book provides insight into the scientific aspects of constellations?as star maps and navigation tools?as well as more fanciful interpretations, including a discussion of the zodiac. The stories associated with some of the most recognizable constellations and boxed inserts posing questions that drive readers to further investigation round out the coverage.
