The night sky and a bit of history

Joe Rao has an interesting night sky column, Doorstep Astronomy: The Celestial Medicine Man. He talks about a constellation on the Zodiac that is between Scorpius and Sagittarius named Ophiuchus. He also defines the difference between a constellation and an asterism and provides some interesting historical trivia about Poniatowski’s Bull.

By the way, did you get out and watch the meteors last night?
