Title:  The Living Sky: An Ancient Greek Legacy

The glow of modern city lights obscures all but a small fraction of the stars that were familiar to ancient Greek observers, who grouped them into the constellations we are familiar with today. Their arrangement is interwoven with Greek mythology and gives insights into how the ancient Greeks viewed themselves and the cosmos.
