33. Capricornus

33. Capricornus

Capricornus (Sea Goat), tenth sign of the Zodiac and fourth Southern Sign, is bounded on the West by Sagittarius, on the East and North-East by Aquarius, on the North by Aquila, and on the South by Piscis Austrinus. It was mentioned by Eudoxus in 4th Century B.C. The two main stars are Alpha and Beta Capricorni. Ancients represented it sometimes as a goat but mainly as a creature having forepart of a goat and hind-part of a fish, probably because of amount of rain at this season. Capricornus is seen from August to October.
