ZetaTalk: Constellation View
written May 24 2004

Constellation views are more than what stands in the dead of night, looking out, and include a full 180° view sunset to sunrise, thus a good portion of the 360° view. In fact, for the Earth, the constellations visible from a hemisphere are the same throughout the year, except for the degree of light polluting the view! A constellation overhead in Winter from the Northern Hemisphere [Auriga] is visible in the nightime sky in the dead of a summer night.
