What Are Constellations



Our constellations mainly come from the Greeks, so why do they have Latin names? And what’s up with those star names, anyway?  This show will look at where our 88 “official” constellations came from, which leads us on a journey through the history of astronomy.  


A Ward Beecher Planetarium original production.
