Have you ever wondered about the stars in the night sky that form pictures and shapes? If you have this is the place you might want to find out about them and what they are called. Star in the sky can be together in groups called constellations,  they appear as patterns in the sky. People a long time ago used constellations to follow, the north star is one of the examples of a star they followed. Some constellations look like humans and other living creatures, others look like non-living creatures. There are a total of 88 constellations in the night sky. As the earth rotates different constellations are visible. Astronomers can tell what time of the year it is by looking at constellations they see. Now you know some information about constellations.
