    Orion (or-RYE-un) is a constellation of a warrior/soldier guy. Apparently, there are many greek myths about him and I learned of one of them: The goddess Artemis fell in love with Orion and when he died, she put is body in the sky with the stars. Also, there are some legends that say when Orion was placed in the sky, his dogs came…[Read more]

    my favorite constellation is the big dipper. THe big dipper wasn’t always in the sky. You know the old nursery rhyme, that always ended with the cow jumps over the moon? Well, the spoon in that story got so bored since each night it was always the cow that was jumping over the moon, he decided to jump over the moon before the cow…[Read more]

    Im going to write, or i guess more of summerize, a story i thought up for the pisces constellation (the fishes).
    Two fish once loved each other as much as any fish could but one day they got seprated in the tides. They spent the next 2years searching the seas for each other, at night following the stars. One night they both took an…[Read more]

    I’ve decided to write a story about the Big Dipper and the Little Dipper. Up until today, I didn’t even know how to find the north star! I had a lot of fun researching and writing. I hope you like it! (I’ve also included a picture of the two constellations):

    8-year-old Nate gazed softly upward, his brow in thick…[Read more]

    • Your story is much better than mine :P Mine was just about how well the big dipper holds salsa at parties :)

        • Thanks…..Hmm, I wonder if I can rent the big dipper for a party.

    we know the stars and I could name every one of them but my favorite would be Leo of the Loin palace. Or as ive come to know him as Loke. Loke has his wild orange hair like a main and he is quite the looker too. He looks like one of the sphinx in Eygpt but i when he resides in the stars bait when he called to earth he can look just…[Read more]

    To think that the fancy word, ”constellation” could describe the stars that appear above our head every night. Amazing. Really it is. Just like the constellation for Virgo. It’s shape looks to be a stick person, but without a head. Even without its head, it a symbol for the sign Virgo. Virgo is a part of the horoscope,…[Read more]

    • What is the story between the formation of the Virgo stars.
      Why are they called Virgo.
      What does it mean to be a Virgo?

    #constellation. I like the big dipper and the little dipper. Not only because of how awesome they look, but because of how handy they are at parties ( holding sauces and all ). If the dipper family was at a party at my house I’d have the big dipper carry guacamole and the little dipper carry salsa. If there was another dipper, I’d have him…[Read more]

    • Hey everyone – take a look at this challenge, it looks like people aren’t doing what it says to do. You won’t earn a badge without doing the requirements…

      • If that’s not how you are supposed to do it then how?

        • See that it says to find a book about star stories, then tell about a story you read or write one of your own? It’s great that you found a star book – if you want you can find a constellation in that book and write a story about what it is.

  • I found a book called “Inside Stars”. I learned that only 5 out of the 10 brightest stars can be seen from big cities, but if you live in the country side you can see thousands of stars in the dark night! When you look up in the sky the stars all look the same but next time you look take the time to notice that some are brighter and some have…[Read more]

  • I read a little about 2 constellations in my book called #FavoriteGreekMyths as retold by Mary Pope Osborne; namely the Bear and the Snake. Phaeton was driving the sun chariot and ran the horses off the track, got near to these two creatures of stars and aggravated them a bit before setting the world on fire and killing everything. good job…[Read more]

    When I posted my favorite picture taken from the Hubble space telescope, I had posted a picture of the remnants of the supernova named Cassiopeia A. This supernova is contained within my favorite constellation (which is Cassiopeia) and that the whole reason I chose the picture of that particular supernova in the first place. This…[Read more]

    #constellation A book listed in the online catalog is “The Book of Constellations: Discover the Secrets in the Stars” by Robin Kerrod.
    Actually, as an amateur author, I’m working on writing my own story, which takes place in the Andromeda Galaxy. The Andromeda is the closest galaxy to the Milky Way, and can be seen in the Northern Hemisphere…[Read more]
