Draco can be found between the Big Dipper and The Little Dipper. In an ancient myth there were two groups of gods, the older gods and the younger gods. The older gods wanted to rest and the younger gods wanted to play. The leader of the older gods, Tiamat, met the leader of the younger gods, Marduk, in battle. Tiamat was in the form of a dragon, but was defeated by Marduk. Marduk left the body in the heavens as a reminder of their battle.
