MythologyMetricsTargetsStar Names
Aquarius is a zodiac constellation that lies south of Pisces, east of Capricornus, north of Pisces Austrinus and west of Cetus. Aquarius is depicted as a youth holding an urn or bucket with flowing water. The water descends from a Y-shaped group of stars in the northern part of the constellation. The water is flowing toward the fish Pisces Austrinus. These constellations, along with the nearby Capricornus, Cetus, Delphinus and Pisces, are often seen as the “sea” of the sky.
