The Spring Constellations

  • David E. Falkner
Part of the Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series book series (PATRICKMOORE)


These constellations begin to show a theme of fruitful fields. It is the time for spring flowers and new birth. Farmers are sowing seeds and watching crops sprout in the fields. The night sky shows some familiar asterisms. The Big Dipper is rising and the Sickle of Leo is high in the southern sky.
