    Re: How do you memorise the stars' names?
    From: Tony Oz

    Frank Reed commented to Tony Oz who said: "Pleiades (we call them "Стожары")":

    Interesting. I have never heard that one. Do you know the Japanese name? It's "Subaru".

    Yes, thanks to wikipedia - I'm aware of that. Since then it became easy for me to tell a "subaru" car from a "suzuki" one. :)

    Seems, this constellation was of importance since very early times arcoss the Earth - the already mentioned Nebra sky disk is believed to present Pleiades as well.

    When I said the rest of constellations are "shapeless" - I actually meant they are featureless (to my eye), that's why it is difficult (for me) to remember them and their names.

    Regards,

    Tony
