I want to learn the constellations. Where do I begin?

Starting out

Stargazing can be an enjoyable pastime, if you know where to start. The Big Dipper, in the constellation Ursa Major, is a common starting point. Commonly found in the northeast or northwest portion of the sky, this bowl-shaped constellation can be used to find many other star formations. Just don't forget to look for the handle--imagine a ladle and you'll find it quickly.
