26. Gemini

26. Gemini

Gemini (Twins), third Zodiacal sign, is between Taurus and Cancer. It contains several double stars, and is represented on most Celestial maps by male twins of mythology . . . Castor and Pollux. Castor is a binary or 'double star' consisting of two white stars of approximately same magnitude, but appears as one very bright star, except when seen through a telescope. Pollux is a navigational star. Castor, Pollux and other principal Gemini stars are very noticeable, because the adjoining areas of Cancer and Lynx constellations have few stars of great magnitude.
