Found a constellation!

Today I was flying from KBFI-EGLL , it was a flight of about 10 hours, when I finished the flight I went to review the replay of the Flight and then I noticed a constellation!!

Are they constellation or something else??

I think is VIRGO

From the screenshot it looks quite like the plough/ Big Dipper/ Ursa Major (depending on where you come from of course)

Given the timing, the directionality, and the star positions yesterday, my best guess would have to be a part of either Andromeda or Pegasus:

The five stars that make it look like the Big Dipper are probably, Xi Peg, Markab, Gamma Peg, Alpheratz, and Scheat, all are gaseous stars found in the body of Pegasus.

The Big Dipper is unlikely in my opinion as the aircraft was pointing North-Northeast, and Big Dipper was situated near the Northwest horizon yesterday around Ursa Major

Yes, the time confirms my suspicions that it must be the body of Pegasus
