So if you would like to support this channel is listed below and the link is below About Pisces the Pisces Pisces is a very ancient constellation and has been observed by very ancient civilizations for thousands of years, so let's get a broad overview of this constellation, before we go into the details. Pisces have been known since ancient times to represent a fish or a pair of fish, its name is the Latin plural form of fish and is classified as a diol constellation, meaning that t he sun passes through this particular constellation, which is best done in the autumn months on the northern sun Hemisphere can be seen, and of all zodiac constellations, this one is quite difficult to see as most stars are three or more in size in the sky, so when can you see it, it is best to see the northern hemisphere during the autumn months and the best way to find it is to look for the big square of pegasus asterism and from there you can try to find the circle that is near this picture here is the big square of pegasusokay that area the sky is very easy to see it is just a huge square in the autumn sky and then you want to look nearby for the circle you ever fish tzt, if you want to see this constellation you have really made a very dark sky to see most of the surrounding constellations really outshine P isces so here we have pegasus we have in dromeda from pegasus and then right here is aries these are the ones Constellations to look for when trying to find Pisces. The best thing about Pisces is that there are several galaxies that can be seen within the confines of this constellation, but some larger magnification is required to see most of these galaxies.
Let's examine some of the legends associated with Pisces. Keep in mind that there is no true constellation story as the legends of the stars vary by culture and location, the name varies by culture, so here we can see how each of these cultures called this particular constellation, and all of these names mean im Essentially fish and especially fish have a symbolic relationship in many religions and cultures. So let's take a look at the Babylonian star catalogs, so this was a star catalog with 71 different stars and constellations and that this star catalog worked with the stars having a prefix of MU L and then the name of the deity after it, so this is it the special one we see for Pisces and the Babylonian star catalogs were very important because it was really the first record we had of how the constellations opened and how they were composed - they also talked about the constellations that were at the zenith and at the same time Horizon are there talked about the orbit of the moon the planet had a solar calendar all this information and of course that was important, because at this time agriculture began to develop and we used humans use the stars as calendars to record the time and to know when to plant, when to harvest, etc.
If we move forward in time we can look at the Greek mythology here, we can look at the story of Aphrodite and Eros, so there are many versions of it. This is a story that I found, but - the father of all monsters descended on Olympus and he was through He ate all the gods and goddesses and as he approached Aphrodite and her son Eros had to escape, so they turned into fish and just swam to safety after this event happened that this is that she turned herself into a fish or that other gods turned them into fish, so there are variations on how this happened. Pisces are also located in the region of the sky known as the sea or water and that is because it is really surrounded by many constellations associated with water so that we can have Aquarius close by, the close by Fish and Capricorn and Cetus irid anis Fish Australis Delphinus is also very close by, so this area is known as Thesea, or the Water, as it is surrounded by many other watery creatures, also remembering the Latinized version of the Greek name for fish and fish of the word fish we can look at many other cultures.
I'm really just scratching the surface here, but in the Babylonian culture we had upKhalu who was a demigod and you can see here that he has the skin of a fish right there and in Hinduism we have Avatar Vishnu right here, you can heis seeing also has a fish as part of its being we can go on here we have Assyrian goddess at Target s I hope I pronounce that right, on this old coin you can see that it has the body of a fish and then I couldn't help but think about it Thinking about the story I grew up with, about Jesus, how he fed on the crowd, the crowd with five loaves of bread and two fish. Lots of different stories about fish and many religions over the centuries and fish can match many of these ancient religions and stories and cultures are connected. First, start with the official star map of this constellation, published by the International Astronomical Union v was released, and one thing you can notice is that there is a blue line going right through this constellation and that blue line is known as the ecliptic which is the path of the sun.
You can tell from this star map how tiny the stars are, if you compare it to all the other surrounding constellations, and the size of these stars really tells us about the size of the stars and remember the size scale, the smaller the number means the star is brighter, so it's an inverse relationship You see most of the star constellations surrounding Pisces are two or three in size, with most of Pisces stars being just paler. We have a brighter star, the alpha star, the beta star here, but that makes it really difficult to identify and make out the pattern in the sky, but if you know what is around fish you can use that around it like Pegasus and to find the large square asterism as well as Aries, so let's look at a picture here, so let's look for me. I don't even look for Pisces right away.
I just want to find the large square of Pegasus, which is pretty obvious in this picture is in the upper right area of this picture. So if you can find the great square of Pegasus right here, you want to look for this circle that is right here, it's just some kind of ring made of stars and if you don't see it that's fine, it's one of those constellations that it took me years to find. Just wasn't sure what I was looking at and mainly because the stars are faint.
As you've probably noticed, Pegasus really does stand out right here that big square, and then this grouping of stars that is right here is Aries llation here is Andromeda too or at least part of that constellation sometimes when I find the big square I go to that next reddish startAndromeda and just go down and then that will help me find the rest of fish, the part of fish, the one I find is the easiest to find is really the hoop and the rope is right next to Pegasus right here is another photo and this is an artificial photo, it's one that comes from a planetarium program, but one of the reasons why I am always struggled to make this article is because it's really hard to photograph this constellation because the stars are faint but we k You can still use this exercise, it's not a true constellation, it's a pattern or shape that helps us find other constellations, so if you can find the big square right there e is the circlet and then from there you can get that Chase tail and then here is the other fish, so if we look at this it looks like Aries is also here and if we imagine that one head of the fish here is the other and then you are supposed to be with this one Time connected in the constellation, so keep in mind that Pisces are in this region of the sky known as CR water because there are many waters surrounding this constellation. In the final part of our article we're going to look at the celestial objects that sit within the confines of the fish, so here we have our official star map and you can see that the main celestial object we're going to look at is m74, but I wanted you show another map that I found because it shows that there are a lot more galaxies here than shown on the previous map, so we're not going to look at all of the galaxies that are here, we're just looking at some really very interesting ones Concentrating Galaxies One of them is Messier 74 and this is a spiral galaxy estimated to be 30 million light years, so here it has the classic spiral shape that we can see in so many spiral galaxies that you can see the core of the galaxy right here and then the arms that curl outwards from the center, so this one particular galaxy was discovered in 1780 and there were different types of supernovae that were in di of a particular galaxy have been observed. This is one to try if you have some really really dark skies, all right and next we have NGC 488 I love the picture of this this galaxy because it is exactly this picture perfect spiral galaxy and it is estimated to be 90 million light years and we only see this face in view of this spiral galaxy and it has a large area right here that is considered part of the core of this galaxy and the arms here you can see that they are twisted much more tightly when you look at this particular one, so the arms are a little looser here where it is the t The arms are tied a lot, much closer together, okay, and this is the area you could find this galaxy in if you got the right magnification, and then we have NGC 520 and this is an interesting object to see because it has a pair of colliding spiral galaxies that are estimated to be 78 million light years away, so we see galactic often hey collisions but we're still learning about their evolution and why this happens and you see that there is this weird dust road going through the one galaxy and for me i find it even difficult to point out the spiral shapes out here, however this is a great object to look at, but of course it was taken by the Hubble telescope so we won't see this kind of detail when looking at it with our telescopes but still we know it's there and it's an interesting one So let's study all that is known about Pisces object for study, it is best seen in the autumn months and has been classified as a diable constellation since passing through the Sun.
The best way to find it is after the large square of Look for Pegasus and then the circle that is part of Pisces, near this large square there are not many bright stars in this constellation, which makes it really difficult power to be sober with yourself and try to find a really dark sky and that will be helpful in your search for fish. There are a couple of celestial objects all are galaxies too faint to see but this is a great area if you happen to have any gear to see them on these spiral galaxies, this is, um, this is a great constellation so wish you the best of luck in finding this constellation, this is one that has really been some years took me to familiarize myself with finding them and even sometimes I still struggle to connect the dots but that's okay just enjoy yourself when you go out and just remember that when You look at this constellation, it is one that has seen thousands of years in many countries cultures take care and good luck and keep looking up
