Constellations of the stars in the sky

On a clear night when there are no clouds in the sky and the moon is shining bright, you may be able to see some of the myriad of stars in the sky.  If you can see the stars whilst inside your bedroom in your home however you may want to look at a Roofer Gloucester company at links including http://gloucester-roofer.co.uk/ . They could come and help you sort out a new roof and then when you want to enjoy the stars you can go to the window to see them. The stars seem like Twinkling Diamonds shining brightly like thousands of light bulbs lighting up the darkness.  Stars have been recognised and given names over the years and grouped into what’s known as constellations.  On a really dark night you should be able to see between 1000 to 1500 different stars.  There are far too many stars to name them all but you may well recognise some of these more well-known names.  Orion, Polaris, Alila Borealis, Castor and Rigel, these stars are grouped together to make it easier to identify them.  Names like “The Big Dipper”, “The Southern Cross” and Orion’s Belt” these are probably descriptions that you have read about or heard said somewhere.  Ursa Major and Minor, Cassiopeia, Taurus, Capricornus, Leo, Gemini, Sagittarius and Andromeda all constellations and well-known names that most people will recognise.

Astronomers are specialists in the field of Astronomy, somebody who focuses their work and studies on astronomical objects, such as stars, moons, planets, galaxies and comets.  They study the skies and they would have researched and decided upon names for all the planets, stars and constellations we know.  Commonly known as The North Star or Polaris this is the brightest star in the night sky and it is in the constellation of Ursa Minor.  Incredibly it is four hundred and thirty-eight light years away from Earth and yet it is still clearly visible to the naked eye.  How amazing that a star can shine so brightly that you can see it sparkling and clear so far away.  Also called the guiding star it is believed that this is the star that led Mary and Joseph to the stable at Bethlehem and allowed the Shepherds and Wisemen to find the baby Jesus born there.

Lots of people read their star-signs in a newspaper and believe the messages and predictions that are written for them. There are twelve star-signs and yours would be allocated by your date of birth, Capricorn, December 22nd to January 20th, Aquarius, January 20th to February 18th.  Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius follow from February back to December. Stars are beautiful, incredible, marvellous, romantic and are for making a wish come true.
