Little Joe (from Kokomo)
i repeatedly used this landmark to zero-in on uranus which, at the time, was in the neighborhood. eventually i gave it a nickname.
the colorful ‘four the hard way’ naked eye asterism lies southeast of the pisces circlet just a few degrees from the zero radec nexus/vernal equinox (27, 29, 30, and 33 psc; psa 07). the ecliptic also runs directly between little joe and the circlet. the quartet makes an equally convincing piece of ‘chiclet’ gum.
