Is That a Constellation on My Necklace?
(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

Question: Hello, I just had a question about a constellation. I don’t know how to insert a picture so I’m just going to describe it. I got a necklace with a constellation that looks like Cancer, except there’s an extra star at the end of the point that goes to the right. I was wondering if this was an actual constellation or something made up because I tried to find constellations with 6 stars that looked like it. I’m not quite sure if you can picture it, but thanks for the help if you can in any way! – Meleena
Answer: This does not sound to me like any constellation that I am familiar with. You might want to try the StarDate Constellation Guide to see if you find a match.
