Guess the Constellation

Have you ever looked at the stars at night and imagined pictures in them? Long, long ago, other people did the same! They named groups of stars after animals and characters from their stories.

Astronomers still use these pictures today as a map of the night sky. We call the groups of stars that make a picture, a constellation. Sometimes it is easy to spot the picture in the constellation. Other times it takes a bit more imagination!
