Hercules Serpens Caput Corona Borealis Draco Virgo Libra ootes B Hera, out of anger at Zeus for his adulterous affair with Callisto, turned her into a bear. Acras nearly killed Callisto while he was hunting, but Callisto was saved by Zeus. Zeus then placed Callisto in the sky as a great bear (what a wonderful way to spend the rest of your days!) and Acras (Bootes) continuosly follows her. Other sources say Callisto was a disciple of Artemis. All of Artemis's followers had to swear to stay clean of men. When Artemis found out that Callisto had broken the oath, Artemis turned her into a bear. Bootes has long since been a constellation, in fact, it is one of the oldest. Bootes was first mentioned by Homer in the Odyssey, but Bootes may have been recognized as early as Sumer! one of the oldest stars in the sky Bootes can be seen on most Northern Hemisphere nights, espically in early June; It always is southwest of the Big Dipper's tail.
