Mythology

 


In Greek mythology, it was Scorpius, the scorpion who finally got Orion. As such the two constellations are set at opposite sides of the sky. The tail of this mighty scorpion lies next to Sagittarius with the pincers towards Libra. The northern end of this constellation is the home of the red super giant star, Antares. The Romans called this star 'Cor Scorpionis', the heart of the scorpion.
