was the greatest mortal hunter of all time. He roamed the Earth
with his two companions, the Big
Dog and the Little
was also a braggart, a big one, he said that no animal could escape
him. After a while this got the goddess Juno really mad, and she
made a Scorpion
sting his heel while he was trying to catch a Hare
so Orion died.
But there was a great doctor, the greatest
doctor of all time, in fact, and his name was Aesculapius (Ophiuchus).
So he brought Orion
back to life. The god Pluto,
King of the dead, got worried. What would happen to his realm
if the dead were brought back to life? So he complained to his
brother, Zeus (Jupiter). Zeus threw his thunderbolt
and killed Orion
Then everybody involved was put on the skies
(along with the Hare
Orion was trying
to get). There were a few precautions made, though, Orion
and the Scorpion
were put on opposite sides of the sky, and there was an Archer
next to the Scorpion,
along with Aesculapius.
