What are constellations?

The sky is a tapestry of art. Look closely at the stars and you can connect them in ways that form pictures and tell stories. At least, this is what early astronomers did thousands of years ago, which is why we now have constellations. To capture and understand this beautiful artwork of nature, let a constellations map be your guide.

In the very early days of man, they didn’t have Google Maps or signs like we do today. Instead, they had to rely on the world around them to navigate their course. One of their most valuable tools was the night sky.

Astronomers found that clusters of stars could serve as wayfinding guides. These clusters have become known as constellations, which translates as set of stars.

Groups of stars have become constellations based on how they resemble certain shapes or outlines (usually the zodiac, an animal, or mythological being). That being said, some constellations are easier to see and understand only when the dots have been connected for us. That’s where a constellation map can come in handy.

What is a constellations map?

A map of constellations is exactly what it sounds like: a representation of all the constellations on a single map. Because not all constellations are obvious when you are looking into the night sky, a constellations map can help you discern what exactly you’re looking for.

Imagine the ability to take a pen and connect the stars to form your own images. That’s very similar to how early astronomers created constellations in the first place! Now, with a highly accurate constellations map, you can start to see some of the shapes and patterns that star enthusiasts saw hundreds, even thousands of years ago.

Knowing what you’re looking at can give you a whole new appreciation for the heavens. What’s more, when you choose a personalized constellations map, the constellations will be oriented in a way that aligns with how you would see them in the sky standing from your precise location on Earth.

How many constellations are there?

The International Astronomical Union (or IAU) recognizes 88 different constellations. Some of the most popular constellations include:

  • Orion
  • Ursa Major (the Big Dipper is part of this constellation)
  • Ursa Minor (the Little Dipper is part of this constellation)
  • Cassiopeia
  • Scorpius
  • Lyra
  • Gemini
  • Aries
  • Pegasus

All of these and more will be visible on a map of the constellations. When you know where to start looking and what you’re looking for, you may be better able to identify constellations in the night sky according to your hemisphere and the time of year.

What makes a map of constellations a unique gift?

There’s no doubt that a constellations map can make for an amazing gift, especially if someone special in your life is constantly looking skyward. This map can open up a whole new world of adventure and opportunity as they try to discern various shapes and patterns in the sky.

But the benefits go well beyond appreciating the world’s sky art. A custom constellation map can also be made to represent how the night sky looked on a particular day and time in your life, such as a birthday, wedding night, engagement, and more.

Custom night sky maps are becoming a favorite treasured gift because of the level of personalization they offer. These beautiful illustrations use authentic astrometry data to ensure the most accurate depiction of how the sky appeared based on a date, time, and location. This means that your map is unlikely to look like any other person’s map, making it truly one of a kind.

When you create a custom star map, your image will show how the constellations appeared on a special moment in your life. Think of it as a single page in your life story, one that everyone can read and enjoy.

Our constellation maps at Positive Prints are stunning works of art that you’ll be proud to display in your home. We give you the flexibility to customize your print in many ways, including:

    Je n'ai pas vu le résusltat final mais la personne à qui j'ai offert le cadeau a beaucoup aimé et l'a trouvé très beau. C'était urgent et j'ai envoyé un mail pour que le cadeau soit livré au plus vite. J'ai eu une réponse très rapide du service client qui a été très gentil et à l'écoute. La livraison express n'aurait pas servi parce que les délais étaient trop courts mais finalement le paquet a été reçu en quelques jours seulement. Merci beaucoup pour le service.

    Kupiłam w prezencie na chrzest i wszystkim bardzo się spodobał. Siostra była zachwycona, że maluch będzie miał ładną pamiątkę i świetny plakat równocześnie (szczególnie mapa gwiazd ją zachwyciła). A do tego dodałam życiowy cytat i naprawdę wyszło coś pięknego (i w dobrej cenie) :) Bardzo polecam !!

    La livraison était plus rapide que prévu ! La qualité est superbe mais le cadre est en plastique... j'aurais voulu qu'il soit en verre.

    Merci beaucoup pour votre gentil retour ! Nous sommes heureux que vous aimiez votre impression. Bien qu'il soit communément admis que le verre est un matériau supérieur au plexiglas, ce n'est en fait pas le cas (du moins en ce qui concerne les cadres d'affiches). Le plexiglas a une résistance aux chocs plus élevée que le verre, ce qui signifie qu'il nécessite plus de force derrière lui pour se briser. Il n'est pas non plus sujet à la corrosion, ce qui est malheureusement le cas pour le verre. Il n'y a rien de plus ennuyeux qu'une œuvre d'art ou une photo obscurcie à cause de la lumière réfléchie. Le verre, contrairement au plexiglas, a tendance à être plus sensible à l'éblouissement. La clarté des cadres photo a tendance à être reflétée par la quantité de lumière qu'il laisse passer. Le verre laisse passer en moyenne 80 % de la lumière et le plexiglas laisse passer environ 90 % de la lumière. Nous réfléchirons à vous offrir la possibilité de choisir le matériau. Merci pour cette nourriture de réflexion ! Passez une bonne journee.

    Danke der Nachfrage - meine zwei Bestellungen wurden super ausgeführt! Beide waren für eine Hochzeit gedacht, die (wegen Corona) immer wieder verlegt wurde! Und ich werde auch ein drittes Mal bestellen müssen, da der Tag nochmals verlegt wurde! Jetzt aber hat die Traumhochzeit stattgefunden und ich kann in Ruhe (nach)bestellen. Auf jeden Fall: Ein tolles Geschenk!
