Constellations

In modern astronomy, a constellation is an internationally defined area of the celestial sphere. These areas are grouped around asterisms (which themselves are generally referred to in non-technical language as "constellations"), which are patterns formed by prominent stars within apparent proximity to one another on Earth's night sky. When astronomers say an object is "in" a given constellation, they mean it is within the boundaries of one of these defined areas of sky.There are also numerous historical constellations not recognized by the IAU or constellations recognized in regional traditions of astronomy or astrology, such as Chinese, Hindu and Australian Aboriginal.

    Posted by willcritchlow Before I start, I should address the irony of writing this post on a site that isn't yet designed for mobile.

This post isn't really about responsive websites, though.
