H E R C U L E S    &    CORONA BOREALIS

Hello!

Hercules is one of the older constellations, dating back to the time of the Phoenicians. To the Greeks, he was the Son of the king of the Greek gods - Zeus, and was a favourite mortal of the gods.
He was known for his many 'Herculean' feats, the 12 labors he had to perform to demonstrate his courage and heroism.
The constellation of Hercules contains one of the most popular deepsky objects M13, 'the Great Hercules StarCluster'.

Corona Borealis, the 'Northern Crown' is a bright half-circle of stars located between Hercules and Bootes. It represents the jewelled crown of Hephaestus, given to Ariadne, the daughter of King Minos of Crete, on her wedding night by the Athenian prince Theseus, son of the sea god Poseidon. Ariadne had promised to help Theseus kill the Minotaur if he would marry her and take her back to Athens.
