There are many popular constellations that are visible from Canada. Popular constellations include the big and little dipper for example.

It depends on your location and the time of year as to what constellations are or are not visible.

Stars are visible at night. Constellations are simply groups of stars as seen from earth, and they are also visible at night.

Due to the rotation of the Earth, the constellations overhead in the day time (which are not visible as it is) are not the same ones visible at night. However, the constellations in today's day sky are the same constellations in the night sky 6 months from now, and the constellations in tonight's night sky are the same constellations in the day sky 6 months from now.

Half of all constellations are visible from the north pole, andall of them are visible from one inch north of the equator.

because the earth spins on an axis and during the different parts of the year certain constellations are visible.

Stars are not constellations. A constellation is an area in the sky where stars are visible, usually in recognisable patterns. There are officially 88 constellations.

The constellations along or near the ecliptic, including the constellations of the Zodiac, are visible from most of north and south america. At high latitudes in either direction, the equatorial constellations will be pretty low on the horizon and may not be visible unless the terrain is fairly flat, or from high elevations such as mountain peaks.

The earth's position has no affect on constellations' visibility. The position of the viewer on the surface of the earth will affect what constellations are visible.

The constellations near the plane of the ecliptic (the zodiacal constellations) are only visible at certain times of the year. The constellations towards the poles (N and S) are visible at all times of the year from their respective hemispheres. In the South, the Southern Cross would be one example and in the North the Great Bear (or plough) would be another.

There are 88 "official" constellations recognized by the International Astronomical Union, the body that decides such things.

Circumpolar constellations are visible all year long, depending on where you are viewing them from. At the north pole, or the south pole, some constellations are visible year-round, these are the circumpolar constellations. On the equator, there are no circumpolar constellations because of the earths rotation, that is why circumpolar constellations are at the "poles". Some of the circumpolar constellations can also be viewed from other parts of the same hemisphere, such as the big dipper and the little dipper, although they are circumpolar, they are also seen in other parts of the northern hemisphere. Circumpolar constellations in the northern hemisphere, will never be seen at the south pole, and vice versa. I hope this helped.
