Never being one that is interested in Astronomy, the only constellation I am aware of is the big dipper. That is because I used to see it every day on my walk to the bus stop in the morning as a kid. Seriously I don’t think I know any other ones. Lucky for me Chelsea is well schooled in the art of star-cluster naming, and she pointed out Orion and his belt the other night to me.
Being the novice star gazer that I am, and being a biologist I didn’t see the same thing she did, nor did I see what this set of stars is named after. I looked at it more like this:
And everyone out there that is a biologist, and especially those in cell biology will see a different conformation.
How about one that looks like this?
What do you think? I certainly know what I think. That cluster of stars is now known as “Metaphase”.
