Constellations of the Northern Skies
National Audubon Society

With billions and billions of stars in the cosmos (smile to Carl Sagan), only three states have officially* recognized astonomical symbols:
 

Delaware star:

Delaware Diamond

Utah astronomical symbol:
Utah centennial star:

Beehive Cluster
Dubhe

 

*Though not recognized as official state symbols, Minnesota's nickname is The North Star State; Alaska's flag features the Big Dipper (Ursa major) and the North star; and the North star is also found on Maine's state flag as a symbol of leadership. Symbolic star shapes are found on many state seals and flags, and of course on the star-spangled banner.
