The 88 constellations are divided by groups, in the orders in which they interact with each other either in theme, mythology, or placement in the sky.
There are four main parts in the book, each part being linked to the astronomer who introduced them.
For each constellation, you will learn the stories associated with them, what deep sky object can be seen in their vicinity, a map to find them in the night sky, if there are any meteor showers happening in them, our tips to remember them easily, and more!
The last pages of this book contain summary tables which will be useful to you for quickly checking what a constellation represents, its page number, and writing your own personal notes to easily remember them with your own words.
It is our hope that this guide will be useful to you to learn and remember as many constellations as possible. We would love to hear what you think of the book so please contact us if you have any comments or questions!
