Constellations

Constellations are grouped by the stars relative locations, but that seems too limiting.

The stars in our night sky are divided into many constellations. There are 88 constellations observed so far from the Earth. Many of them are named after characters or objects taken from ancient Greek myths.

The night sky is divided into Northern hemisphere and the Southern hemisphere. People living in these regions can only see the constellations visible in this region. People living in the Northern hemisphere can observe many constellations. Most popular among them are the Great Bear, Orion, Scorpion, Pegasus and Leo. But they all cannot be observed together. According to astronomers, the southern sky is more starry than the northern sky.

An imaginary shape of a bear is drawn around the constellation Ursa Major, popularly known as the Great Bear.
