    1 - Orion's belt (thanks to movie intros)

    I can never figure out if I'm looking at the Big or Little Dipper.  LOL

    Dipper/s. Like Walt, I don't know the big from the little. 

    So, technically zero, I guess.

    Just the usual basic ones.  Big and little dipper and the mighty Neambosia.

    Orion. Everyone should know Orion. It's pretty obvious and awesome.

    I also know the Dippers (the Ursae) and I believe I do know Taurus.

    Only three, I am afraid to admit:

    The Plough, Cassiopeia, and Orion (the last complete with the Orion Nebula, a star cluster not really classed as a "constellation").
