Learn to recognize constellations portfolio
This page allows you to visually recognize the major constellations of the northern hemisphere from a "real" sky and to identify themselves in relation to other constellations.
The easiest way is to first find the constellation of Ursa Major that is one of the most recognizable constellations. Then, from the segment of the opposite edge "from the handle of the bowl", you must report 5 times the distance of this segment while remaining in alignment to find the Polaris Star. This star has the distinction of being almost aligned with the earth's rotation axis (northern hemisphere) and the visual result is to have all the constellations turning around from East (raising) to West (setting) with a maximum height at the meridian position (i.e. South direction)
