I enjoy hearing about what other’s make of star patterns. There is a lovely chapter in Skylight Nights where the young Leslie Peltier gets up in the small hours to view an unfamiliar region of the night sky. He makes up his own constellations, but none coincide with the “standard” ones. 

I tried to find Orion’s Arrow the other night, but even knowing what to look for, I struggled. Clearly I lack Mrs Basey’s imagination! Or perhaps it was that I was distracted by Betelgeuse’s faintness and that it might go supernova.
