Countless Constellations

Let’s head back to the days when we were curiosity driven kids who used to look up to the sky, joining stars with our imagination to given them a unique shape. We had not known what these shape were called till we grew up a little more and found them in our very own science text books.

We were taught that A constellation is a group of stars that, when seen from Earth, form a pattern. The stars in the sky are divided into 88 constellations and the brightest constellation is Crux (the Southern Cross). But as kids we used to imagine more than those listed 88 constellations… for us the number of constellations were Countless !

As years passed by and pollution levels rose further, even those few constellations that we could see, couldn’t be seen any further. It’s now a rare sight for the people who live in the major cities and towns.

Nowadays if we get to spot our own zodiac sign in the night sky, we should be thankful for that beautiful sight. 🙂
