The Constellations

About

Ancient Guides, Modern Wonders

Constellations are your map to the night sky. These patterns have been passed down from culture to culture and help us locate objects of interest in astronomy while providing us a way to travel back in time to explore the people who gazed upon these same stars before us.

Explore the patterns that change overhead throughout the year in this live star show.
