Since the tracking of the stars in the sky began. In others words, the formation of groups of stars has also begun. This is done to make it easier to navigate the sky we see above us. Today we have formed shapes. This is basically a specific area of ​​the celestial sphere, where humans have apparently linked stars into recognizable shapes. The stars were observed with the naked eye, and throughout all the years the shapes of the were often changed. Over time, new astro devices have helped astronomers. After to explore the starry sky you need astronomy equipment. Therefore, buy a telescope. Above all, the stars attract you.

Many star shapes

In 1922, the names for 88 different constellations were agreed upon. Defined is the celestial vault into different areas. Above all, the stars are not equal. In addition, the basic division is into the constellations of the northern and southern hemispheres.

The circumpolar constellations of the Northern Hemisphere are: Ursa Major, Ursa Minor, Cassiopeia, Cepheus, and Draco. In conclusion, circumpolar constellations of the Northern Hemisphere are: Ursa Major, Ursa Minor, Cassiopeia, Cepheus, and Draco. The Circumpolar shapes of the Southern Hemisphere are: Carina, Centaurus and Crux.
