Check Out The Heavens

I awoke at 2 am yesterday to pee, which I do now most nights. It was 27 degrees Fahrenheit and crystal clear. The stars were so bright, they lit up the night. So how many constellations are there that reference fish?


Well the International Astronomical Union (IAU) is now rapidly adding constellation names, but here are the 5 names associated with the IAU's original 88 modern names:

Constellation                                      Origin                                     Meaning
Delphinus                                         Ancient (Ptolemy)                               Dolphin
                                                              AD 100 – c. 170


Dorado                                            1603, Uranometria                           Dolphinfish
                                                             created by Keyser
                                                             
                                                              and de Houtman

Pisces                                               Ancient (Ptolemy)                               Fishes
                                                              AD 100 – c. 170


Piscis Austrinus                               Ancient (Ptolemy)                            Southern Fish 
 
 


Volans                                            1603, Uranometria                          Flying Fish
                                                            created by Keyser
                                                             and de Houtman
 
 


Many thanks again to Wikipedia for the assist here. The moral to this post is Life is Short. Get out there and fly fish Idaho, take in more sunsets, gaze at more sunrises and don't forget those incredible stars on a clear night. Hard takes and tight lines to all.
