Definition of Markab
- Full moon occurs in the early morning, and at night the moon moves below Pegasus. Early in the morning, it is below the western (right-hand) edge of the Square of Pegasus, with the stars Markab and Scheat above it and Fomalhaut … below it.

- This is part of a constellation the body of the winged horse Pegasus, who has the dubious distinction of being upside down with his neck and head stretching west from Markab, the southwestern star of the four.
