24. Aries

24. Aries

Aries "The Ram" is mentioned by Eudoxus (4th Century B.C.); in Mythology it is said to be the Ram with Golden Fleece sacrificed to Zeus who placed it in the Heavens as a constellation. It is the first sign in the Zodiac. Only main stars, easy to identify, are illustrated, but over 50 can be seen unaided and even thousands by using a powerful telescope. North of Aries is Triangulum, Cetus is South, Pisces is on the West and Taurus East. The bright star Hamal is used for navigation.
