Rate this:
For thousands of years, people have gazed into the night sky and observed the stars. Scientists estimate that about 6,000 stars are visible with the naked eye, but there are billions more that cannot be seen from Earth. The various star formations, such as Orion and Ursa Major, are known as constellations. This book will examine those and other constellations, as well as discussing how they were discovered and mapped throughout history, some myths from the past, and what modern scientists have learned about them.
