Set B3 - Out Into Space - card information

30. Libra

30. Libra

Libra (Balance), seventh Sign of the Zodiac, and first Autumnal Sign. The Sun enters this part of Ecliptic at Autumnal Equinox when days and nights are equal in length - hence its name. Libra is bounded by Virgo on the West, Scorpio on the East, Serpens on the North and Centaurus on the South. It is an inconspicuous constellation, having no stars of great magnitude, although there are several double and triple stars; also two clusters in one of which Herschel observed 200 different stars of eleventh and less magnitude.
