    Hmmm... I looked out of the window and I could make out only one constellation clearly - Orion

    I think I can make out Saptarishi (Big dipper) too, but i'm not very sure.

    I guess I don't know much about astronomy.

    @aniketdave
    yea orion....u can make it out due to its belt(cluster of 3 bright stars called orion's belt)...
    orion is supposed 2 be a hunter. with 2 pets 'canis major'(near its feet to left) n 'canis minor'(near head to left). It even has a prey...Lepus the hare (below its feet)!!!
    lol
    it also has a beautiful giant red nebula (ROSE nebula, since it has red rose like petals n green stem)
    also if u follow the line of the 3 stars of the orion's belt, to the left is the brightest star in the sky.......SIRIUS...
    hope tht was helpful.....

    The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst
    Out at you from their hiding place?
    Like acid and oil on a madman's face
    His reasons tend to fly away

    Like lesser birds on the four winds, yeah
    Like silver scrapes in May
    Now the sands become a crust
    And most of you have gone away, then you're gone away

    Ah, come Susie dear, let's take a walk
    Just out there upon the beach
    I know you'll soon be married
    And you'll want to know where winds come from

    Well, it's never said at all
    On the map that Carrie reads
    Behind the clock back there you know
    At the four winds bar, mm, yeah

    Yeah
    Hey!
    Hey!
    Hey!
    Hey!
    Four winds at the four winds bar
    Two doors locked and windows barred
    One door left to take you in
    The other one just mirrors it
    Hey!
    Hey! Yeah!
    Hey! Yeah!
    Hey!

    Ooh, in hellish glare and inference
    The other one's a duplicate
    The queenly flux, eternal light
    Or the light that never warms
    Yes, the light that never, never warms
    Yes, the light that never, never warms
    Never warms, never warms

    The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst
    Out at you from their hiding place?
    Miss Carrie nurse and Susie dear
    Would find themselves at four winds bar

    It's the nexus of the crisis
    And the origin of storms
    Just the place to hopelessly
    Encounter time and then came me

    Hey!
    Hey!
    Hey!
    Hey!

    Call me Desdenova, eternal light
    These gravely digs of mine
    Will surely prove a sight
    And don't forget my dog, fixed and consequent

    Astronomy - a star
    Astronomy - a star
    Astronomy (astronomy) - a star, yeah
    Astronomy - a star

    Astronomy
