How to View the Constellations of the Autumn Sky. The stars of the autumn sky represent
a wealth of both intergalactic objects and mythological tales for everyone from astronomy
buffs to the casual observer. You will need Clear night Telescope or binoculars and star
chart (optional). Step 1. Choose a clear, starry autumn night to stargaze. For the best
possible viewing, a telescope is ideal. But, if you don't have access to one, you can get
a magnified view of the nighttime sky with a pair of binoculars. Use a star chart specific
to the current month to help guide and inform your search for constellations. Step 2. Find
the constellation Cassiopeia at the top of the sky in mid-autumn. The mythological queen
is represented by five bright stars making a W, or M, shape. Step 3. Locate the constellation
Andromeda, daughter of King Cepheus and Queen Cassiopeia, directly to the south of Cassiopeia.
Look through your binoculars or telescope to get a better view of the Andromeda Galaxy,
called M31, which is the closest large galaxy to our Milky Way. Step 4. Find the Great Square
of Pegasus by looking for a square formed by four bright stars with very little visible
in its middle. Find the front legs and head by picturing the winged horse upside down.
Enjoy the transitional season to enjoy the constellations. Did you know In Greek mythology,
the winged horse, Pegasus, was born out of Medusa's body when Perseus cut her head off.
