All Bayer-Designated Stars of the Night Sky

I made the following chart which gives an array of all the Bayer-designated stars of each of the 88 constellations (in other words, the ones labeled with Greek letters), with the lightness of the fill indicating the brightness of the star and the hue of the fill reflecting the color of the star. There’s quite a few interesting patterns that can be noticed from this method of organizing stars (anyone want to start categorizing “blue constellations” and “red constellations”?).
