Hi, I was just studying the constellations in my textbook and I'm just curious about something. Do the constellations change shape if you observe them at different planets (eg at Mercury or Jupiter) with the naked eye. Since the stars are so far from us, I would guess that the constellations (as seen from other planets) will not appear to change their shapes. However, with the aid of a telescope, I think the changes can be detected. Please help me solve this mystery. Thanks in advance
