The Pegasus constellation is located in the northern sky and can be seen at the end of summer and throughout autumn if the person is situated within the upper half of the equator. The 51 Pegasi (one of the stars within this constellation) is the first Sun-like star to have a planet orbiting around it. It's my favourite constellation because of it's mythological origins and its simplistic geometric shape.
Every clear, cloudless night, away from the bright town lights, the night sky treats us to a dazzling spectacle. Countless twinkling stars shine down from the heavens, sprinkled all around like fairy dust. It’s illustrated right above us much like Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel. But just like the painting, the display is complex and difficult to understand. There are many different parts of the sky with many different topics to go over. One of those topics is the intricacy of constellations. In order to understand what exactly they are, one must start from the beginning, so the most appropriate place to start off is the birth of a star.
For my favourite constellation, I have chosen that of Ursa Major, Latin for "The Great She-Bear". I have chosen this mostly for sentimental reasons in that the asterism known as The Big Dipper (also known as "The Plough") can be found in it, and this asterism has always been a comfort to me in when searching the night sky of the Northern Hemisphere no matter where in that Hemisphere I may be. It was the first constellation I learned to find in the night sky as a child, and it is still the first I seek at night in present times. Ursa Major, as well as being in the Northern Hemisphere, is bordered by such constellations as Draco ("The Dragon"), Camelopardalis ("The Giraffe"), The Lynx, Leo Minor ("The Little Lion"), Leo ("The Lion", a member
The constellation I have chosen is the constellation Hydrus. It was originally established by dutchman Petrus Plancius prior to 1603 and is located in the southern hemisphere. While it is composed of three main stars arranged in a vaguely triangular shape, it contains many over twenty one celestial bodies. Some of the stars are known to have planets in their orbit. I chose it because of its pleasing shape and its association with water snakes, of which I am especially fond.
My favorite constellation is the Little Dipper because its so underrated, but its just as good as the big dipper. By the name i hope you can tell that it looks like a little dipper spoon thing that you would cook with. So yeah. Spoons are cool. And I'm underrated so i can really relate to the little dipper, you know? Plus the little dipper has the north star which is a shining star and I'm a shining star so hah.
A constellation is a constellation is a group of stars that make an imaginary shape in the night sky, usually named after mythological characters, people, animals and objects (Ask An Astronomer). The word “constellation” comes from a latin term meaning “set with stars”. Constellations lead to a vast array of legends based off of imagination that vary in different countries and cultures, but the one thing that they have in common is that they are made of the same array of bright stars that connect to make incredible fictional figures. Constellations are physically there, but also take a lot of imagination to be able to piece the stars together and also the myths that come with them as well.
I chose to do my essay on the constellation Sagittarius. The reason I chose this constellation is because it has always fascinated me. I also chose it because it would give me a reason to learn more about it. Sagittarius is Latin for archer. The constellation Sagittarius occupies 867 square degrees and contains the most stars, making it the largest constellation in the Southern Hemisphere and the 15th largest over all. Sagittarius also contains 16 planets and is home to the bright blue hyper-giant Pistol Star . The constellation is visible to the naked eye and is best viewed during August around nine in the evening. It is located in the center of the Milky Way and borders Aquila, Scutum, Serpens Cauda, Ophiuchus, Corona Australis, Telescopium,
The constellation is located in the southern hemisphere and is the 43rd largest constellation in the sky. It is visible throughout the summer and fall, returning to appear in spring dawns.
I have chosen the Pegasus constellation because of its amazing and complex shape. The Pegasus constellation is located in the northern hemisphere and is one of the largest constellations in the universe. Pegasus is the seventh largest constellation and it occupies 1121 square degrees. You can see it at latitudes between +90º and -60º. It is located in the forth quadrant of the northern hemisphere. It has 9 stars in its constellation and its largest and brightest star is Enif. It is bordered by Andromeda to the North and East, Lacerta to the North, Cygnus to the Northwest, Vulpecula, Delphinus, and Equuleus to the West, Aquarius to the South and Pisces to the South and East.
The constellation I have chosen is Centaurus! Centaurus is of course a bright constellation that belongs in the southern sky and is considered to be one of the largest constellations. Of course because of its position in the Milky Way, it contains several very bright stars and to add to this, its beta and alpha star are used to find the constellation Crux, this constellation has a magnitude of 6.5 and 281 stars and with the magnitude of 6.5 makes it visible to the unaided eye. I chose this constellation because I find it the most interesting and I find it absolutely beautiful, we have so much left to discover about this constellation.
My favorite constellation is Delphinus. I really didn't know much about different constellations so I did some research and found this one. Dolphins have always been one of my favorite animals so I instantly liked it. Delphinus is the latin word for Dolphin, and Delphinus is in the northern sky close to the celestial equator. Delphinus was one of forty eight constellations founded by Ptolemy in the 2nd century. Delphinus is a rather small constellation, ranking 69th biggest out of 88. It is also bordered by Vulpecula, Sagitta, Aquila, Aquarius, Equuleus, and Pegasus.
Cassiopeia Constellation is in the Northern sky. It is named after the conceited Queen Cassiopeia of Greek Mythology. It is a circumpolar constellation meaning that
The Lyra constellation lies in the northern sky; It is located in the fourth quadrant of the northern hemisphere (NQ4) and can be seen at latitudes between +90° and -40° between spring and autumn, and nearly overhead, in temperate latitudes, during the summer months. From the southern hemisphere, it is visible low in the northern sky during the winter months; it’s quite a small constellation, making it 52nd in size. The major stars in Lyra include: Vega, the brightest star, Sulafat, the second brighter star, Sheliak, R Lyrae, δ Lyrae (Delta Lyrae), the Double Double, RR Lyrae, DM Lyrae, κ Lyrar (Kappa Lyrae), Alathfar μ Lyrae (Mu Lyrae), the Gliese 758, and Kuiper 90 (17 Lyrae C, Gliese 747AB). The star shows a regular pattern of pulsation
Star: A self-luminous celestial body consisting of a mass of gas held together by its own gravity in which the energy generated by nuclear reactions in the interior is balanced by the outflow of energy to the surface, and the inward-directed gravitational forces are balanced by the outward-directed gas and radiation pressures.
