Who are meteor showers are named after?

They are not named after people. The different showers are named after the constellations they appear to be coming from. The Perseids appear to come from Perseus and the Leonids appear to come from Leo for example. In reality, they have no connection to the constellations they are named after. Those are just the constellations that happen to be behind the point where the meteors appear to come from. The constellations are huge distances away, whereas the meteors are just in the Earth's atmosphere.They are not named after people.

Do Constellations revolve around the Sun?

No. Constellations appear to move, because the earth is spinning on it's own axis. Only the earth and the planets revolve around the sun. The planets that you can see in the sky, do not form any part of a constellation. They move relative to the constellations and wander about. 'Planet' is Greek for Wanderer.

Formulate a theory for the constellations?

Constellations are a result of accidental collinearity. Most stars in a constellation are separated by huge distances but their position is such that they appear to lie close to one another and appear to move together in a single shape. In addition, most constellations are based on pretty impressive imagination of ancient civilisations which managed to see images of their mythical characters or animals in these shapes.


Are constellations stars falling towards earth?

No. Constellations are arrangements of stars that appear to form pictures.


What causes constellations to appear to move?

There are two things that cause the constellations to appear to move.The first is the earth's rotation, this causes the zodiac constellations to rise in the east at dusk move across the sky at night and set in the west at dawn just like the Sun moves across the sky during the day. Those constellations that appear near the north or south polar areas of the sky don't rise and set, they simply rotate during the night.The Earth rotates once a year round the Sun and as the zodiac constellations are arranged in a circle round the Sun in the plane of the Earth's orbit, as the Earth orbits the sun different constellations will be visible in the night sky at different parts of the orbit. This too causes the constellations to appear to move, for instance Orion is visible in the night sky during the northern winter but is on the opposite side of the Sun to Earth during the summer (and therefore not visible)The earth does not rotate once a year round the sun, its called orbiting, rotate is spinning and orbit is moving around an object. Earth is a satellite of the sun.


What are the twelve constellations the solar system bodies move through?
