Tonight the constellation, Camelopardalis (Latin for "Giraffe"), crosses the meridian.  I didn't know about this constellation.  It was first named Camel, then later changed to Giraffe.  During February the northern hemisphere can see it upside down; it is right-side up in summer.  For more information click here.
