Above is a new video I've just published entitled "The Stars: An Extremely Ancient Way to See Them," exploring the connections between the constellations and the world's ancient myths.

The video presents evidence using some ancient artwork which regular visitors to this blog and my other videos may have seen before -- because it is one of my favorite examples and is very hard to refute -- but also presents some new angles which I have not discussed before in previous videos or blog posts.

As a special bonus, this video deals with an extremely mythologically-important region of the night sky: the region containing the constellations Sagittarius, Scorpio, Ophiuchus, and the brightest portion of the great Milky Way band -- including the brightest and widest portion of the entire Milky Way, thought by astronomers to be our galaxy's central core. This particular time of year is one of the best times of year to go outside and view these constellations in person for yourself, if it is at all possible for you to do so.

Sagittarius and Scorpio (as well as Ophiuchus above, and the Galactic Core in between) are now wheeling across the sky along the highest part of their arcing path during the hours after sunset and up through midnight and beyond, for viewers in the northern hemisphere.

I hope you will enjoy my latest video and share it with friends and family members who may find this information to be valuable in their own lives.

Also, everyone interested is encouraged to subscribe to the YouTube channel in order to be notified whenever I post a new video!

Thanks for watching.
