List of Constellations

City Deep Sky ProjectHere is a list of all 88 IAU recognized constellations. The list gives the name of the constellation, the genitive (e.g. alpha Leonis is the brightest star in Leo), the abbreviation and the approximate season that the constellation will be up in the northern hemisphere. Note that not all constellations are visible depending on the observers latitude. Also keep in mind that objects are generally visible for three seasons. So Leo being a spring constellation would be an early morning winter object or an early evening summer object.
