The book Night Sky, is about what you see in the sky, either with your naked eye, binoculars, or a telescope, etc. The book talks about constellations, planets, and stars. I already knew about the constellations Ursa Major, Orion and other constellations in the northern hemisphere. I also had much more back ground knowledge thanks to Mr. Watson. But, there was still lots of things I learned!

Orion VS. Taurus

On page 40 there was a picture of Orion in a position as if something is coming at him. But, after I read in the caption I realized that Orion was really in a position as if something was coming at him. In the text it says "With is his dogs Canis Major and Canis Minor, he faced the charging bull Taurus." I would like to thank for this photo.

The Questions I Still Have

The question I still have is, what is (a) zodiac? I can locate some answers in the book index and on Google. I located my answer on Google, and the answer was "In both astrology and historical astronomy, the zodiac is a circle of twelve 30° divisions of celestial longitude that are centered upon the ecliptic, the apparent path of the Sun across the celestial sphere over the course of the year.".
