Transcript of Leo

Leo The Lion (roar) Leo is best seen at 9:00 PM in April, and is to be found in the Northern Hemisphere right of Virgo, below Leo Minor, and Coma Berenices is above and to the left of it. History of Leo The group of stars known as Leo were known as that with many civilizations, such as the Egyptians, the Babylonians, the Syrians, the Romans, the Greeks, the Pusians, the Jewish people, and the Indians. The only three that actually had some sort of tale were the Egyptians', the Romans' and the Greeks'. The Egyptains worshiped Leo because they associated the rising of the Nile with the coming of the Sun, because at the time the Nile would start to rise, the lions would come from the desert and reside by the banks of the Nile. Also because the lion has been associated with the sun since some of the earliest cultures. The Greeks' and Romans' mythology said this: Nemean Lion (Leo) had been terrorizing the village and killing the crops, so as one of Hercules' 12 labours, he had to kill it. Since the lion's pelt was impervious to metal or stone, he wresteled it with his bare hands, then choked it to death. He then used the lion's own claws to skin it, and used it's pelt as a cloak to protect him, and it's head as a helmet. Regulus (Alpha Leo)
