Shapes in the Stars
February 9, 2021
A group of stars is called a constellation. The shape seems to form a picture. Here are four constellations. Have you seen them in the night sky?
Scorpius is one of the brightest constellations in the sky. It looks like a scorpion.
This is the Big Dipper. It looks like a tool for scooping water from a bucket.
This constellation is Orion. Orion is a hunter. The three stars on his “belt” shine bright.
This is Pegasus. In Greek mythology, Pegasus is a flying horse.
