Hello!

Eridanus, "The River" is one of the 'classical 48', and represents the mythological great river that circled the known world. It has been associated with the Euphrates, Nile, and Po rivers.
Eridanus is the sixth-largest constellation in the sky and stretches from Orion's foot far into the southern sky.
In Greek Myth, Eridanus is the river that the ill-fated Phaethon fell into after his disastrous attempt to drive the Sun charriot.

Fornax, "the Furnace" was created in 1752 by the French astronomer Nicolas de Lacaille in a bend on the west bank of the great river Eridanus.
It represents a furnace used by a chemist. Due to the constellation's southern declination and it's faint stars, it is mostly invisible from 40 deg lattitude.
