Constellations

A constellation is an area in the celestial sphere where a group of visible stars form a specific pattern or outline, usually representing an animal, mythological people or creatures or even inanimate objects.

The word “constellation” comes from the latim “cōnstellātiō” which translates to “set of stars”.

A planet is a celestial body that orbits a star or the remnant of one. Formerly, planets were seen as something divine or portraited as the emissaries of the gods. The Solar System’s planets orbit our star, the Sun. The planets are divided into two different groups: the “gas giants” and “the terrestial planets” that are smaller and rockier than the previous ones.
