Question: What constellation is known as the swan constellation?

The given options are as follows:

  • Lyra
  • Cygnus
  • Cassiopeia

The correct answer is: Cygnus

Fact: Cygnus is the Latinized Greek word for swan and the name of one of the most recognizable constellations in the northern summer and autumn sky. Cygnus is also referred to as the Northern Cross, as its stars do roughly form the shape of a cross. And when lines are drawn between the stars, they form the shape of a winged bird in flight.
