Hospitality and Homicide

February, May–July
Part of the Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series book series (PATRICKMOORE)


The six constellations in this group are related by Greek origin myths, but not by a single myth. Boötes, Virgo, and Canis Minor are related by a single myth, but Libra is related to Virgo by an entirely different story, and Corona Borealis is related to Boötes by an independent myth which involves the same Greek god. A seventh constellation, Triangulum, is also related to Virgo by another myth, but is covered in Chap. 10 because it is also related to the voyage of the Argonauts.
