The Winged Horse - Pegasus.
The seventh largest constellation in the sky, it is one of the 48 constellations listed by the 2nd-century astronomer Ptolemy, and is one of the 88 constellations recognised today, named after the winged horse Pegasus in Greek mythology. Curiously, the constellation Pegasus only represents the top half of the horse. In some depictions, the horse is shown rising out of the water.

The constellation is known for the Great Square of Pegasus, a familiar asterism in the northern sky, as well as for a number of bright stars and deep sky objects.

Viewed best in autumn, turn your eyes to the east as the night falls, and see the winged horse rising high up in the sky.
