The constellations from Earth


Astronomy was studied long before civilizations.

Nature of ConstellationsEdit

The constellations were seen as markers of cycles. Every year the twelve constellations rotated through a complete cycle, and every 15,000 years they all rotated through a larger one.


The constellations begin with Gemini, and are part of a story of which the Gilgamesh epic has the best extant version.
