"There are 88 constellations in the sky, as astronomers defined it in the 20th century. The zodiacal constellations, which are found in the celestial strip through which the Sun, Moon and planets travel, are especially well known. Also important are the constellations that serve to orient us at night, such as the The Great Bear, which is in a northern direction, or Crux, the Southern Cross, which orients us to the south".​​​​​​​
