What is a constellation?

A constellation is a group of visible stars that form a pattern when viewed from Earth. The pattern they form may take anything from the shape of an animal, a mythological creature, a man to an inanimate object.

The sky was divided up into 88 different constellations in 1922. This included 48 ancient constellations listed by the Greek astronomer, Ptolemy, as well as 40 new constellations.
