  2. Name of Constellation • This is the super easiest part • Write the name of your constellation

  3. Location • Using Right Ascension and Declination • Describing where it is

  4. Translation and Legend • Translation – what does the name of the constellation mean. • Eg. Microscopium means “the microscope” • Legend – what is the story behind the constellation – many come from Greek or Roman myths. If there is no legend – what does it look like, who came up with the name…

  5. Picture / Map • Give a picture or map of that constellation. • This can be from the web, from books, or you can draw it based on those sources.

  6. Cool Stuff in the Constellation • Many of these constellations have cool “faint fuzzies” in them (Taurus has M1, Orion has M42) Galaxies – Nebula - Clusters • Others have important asterisms – (Taurus has the Pleiades, Sagittarius has the “teapot”, Ursa Major has the “Big Dipper”) • Some have other important things – (Cygnus has Cygnus X-1 – a probable black hole!) binary stars – variable stars

  7. Example • Lepus • Location RA 5hr 10 min Dec. -15 degrees • Lepus is the constellation of the Rabbit • Lepus is an ancient constellation found under the feet of Orion, the Hunter.  The creature is associated with the Moon in mythology.  Some say that the dark regions on the surface of the Moon are a rabbit, originally Lepus.  The rabbit was the favorite prey of Orion and his hunting dogs.
