Transcript of Really Cool Awesome Constellation Project
"Tool of Might" Star Chart Position:

M6-The Butterfly Cluster (Open Cluster)
M7-Ptolemy's Cluster (Open Cluster)
M80-Globular Cluster The myth of Scorpio starts with the hunter
Orion. He claimed that he was such a great
hunter and would kill all the animals in the world.
Gaea, the mother of the Earth, was upset at his
claim. To prevent him from carrying out his plan,
she sent the great scorpion, Scorpio after him.
Scorpio eventually was able to sting Orion to
death. With his dying breath, Orion wished to
be placed far away from Scorpio in the stars.
That is why Scorpio and Orion are never in
the sky at the same time. Mythological Figure Five Brightest Stars 1. Antares (Alpha Scorpii)
2. Shaula (Lambda Scorpii)
3. Sargas/Girtab (Theta Scorpii)
4. Wei (Epsilon Scorpii)
5. Dschubba (Delta Scorpii) A Cluster is a group of stars that have the appearance of galaxies. A globular cluster is a very dense, spherical shaped cluster of stars. An open cluster is less dense and more spread out and less organized. The Stars in a globular cluster are presumed to have been created at the same time, and contain hundreds of thousands if not millions of stars. Most of these clusters do not contain Spectral Class O and B type stars, showing their age. Mythological Figure Viewing Information Season: Winter

He wanted to note all of the objects that were confused with comets as it was a very common occurrence for people to discover comets to make make themselves famous themselves in astronomy. Mythological Figure Messier Object R23- open cluster, Talon nebula
Majority class G2 VT2Y- open cluster, Milky Way
Majority class F1 LIP410- Globular cluster, Milky Way
Majority class A2 Scorpius, in the northern hemisphere, is very low in the sky. Therefore, it is best seen in the southern hemisphere, or in the southern US. http://i.space.com/images/i/000/001/110/i02/050722_scorpius_02.jpg?1292263452 "July Constellations." - Discover the Constellations on Sea and Sky.
