Constellations

On a clear night, you can see about two thousand stars in the sky. Scientists can use giant telescopes to see billions of stars. Stars in groups form pictures called constellations. These constellations have been recognized for years. Ancient people named many constellations for animals, heroes, and mythical creatures. Many of these names are still used. Some constellations can be seen every night of the year. Others change with the seasons.

Since all stars are constantly moving, these same constellations that we now see will be changed thousands of years from now.
