Astro 1 Section 1 Professor Brandt Monday March 29th 1999 Announcements: Lecture notes: Class 31 Constellations We have covered most of the major constellations of the northern sky now - just 4 or 5 more to finish off. Will teach 4 new constellations today. First 3 are in the same part of the sky Virgo Corvus and Leo. Virgo - to find Arc to Arcturus and then keep going along this arc until you come to another bright star. This will be the star Spica (1000 L (.) 190 ly) in Virgo. Virgin - looking at Bootes the Herdsman. Spica is her diamond Virgo cluster is in this constellation. Nearest large cluster of galaxies - 18 Mpc. Then move over a little bit to see four stars in a quadrangle shape. This is Corvus = Crow. Supposedly looking over at Virgin's diamond wanting to snatch it. Then go above Virgo and Corvus to see Leo . The Lion. Planets move through it because it is one of the constellations on the ecliptic. There are 12 major constellations along the ecliptic.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
