Immortal illuminations of islands in the sky - constellations, zodiac, star-gazing tours
Signs of the Zodiac explained by Big Dipper Bill

*You bet your As-terisms you can find the constellations

It doesn’t matter if your driving in unfamiliar territory, dissecting digestive glands in a dog in anatomy class - or searching for stars in the skies above , it is imperative to quickly search for and learn relatively easy to find “landmarks”.

For our purposes of naked-eye astronomy, asterisms are our landmarks. As you know to “turn left at the stop sign”, you can “look slightly east of the Big Dipper” for instance.
