Set B3 - Out Into Space - card information

28. Leo

28. Leo

Leo (Lion), fifth sign of the Zodiac, is bounded on the West by Cancer, on the East by Virgo. It is easy to locate . . . a straight line from the Pole Star to Plough Pointers leads to Leo. February to end of June is good time for viewing, but evenings in March and April are best. Principal and very prominent star is Regulus . . . also known as Cor Leonis (Lion's Heart) or Royal Star. Regulus, Gamma Leonis and several smaller stars form a group shaped like a sickle. From near these stars most of November meteor showers known as Leonids radiate.
