Why Different Constellations Are Visible at Different Times of the Year

Previous Previous Next Next
Description
On the autumnal equinox each year, the Sun is in the constellation Virgo. As seen from Earth, that part of the sky is then daylight and we see stars only on the other half of the sky, centered around the constellation Pisces.
Six months later, the Sun is in Pisces. This side of the sky is then bright, while the side centered on Virgo is in darkness.
