 Description
 
If you are interested in astronomy this collection brings very helpful informations about all 88 areas into which the whole of the northern and southern hemisphere of the sky is now divided. These areas were established by the International Astronomical Union in 1930.

In the collection you can find:

  • the Latin names of all 88 constellations
  • the genitive forms which are used with the appropriate letter or number for the star names, as with Alpha Ursae Majoris
  • the three-letter abbreviations for the constellations which are more usually used than original names
  • names of the brightest stars
  • origin of some constellation names

    Did you know that originally the constellations had no fixed limits but were groups of stars considered by early civilizations to lie within the imagined outlines of mythological heroes, creatures, and other forms?
