star Etmain, Gamma (Y) Draconis, a second magnitude star in the
constellation belongs to Draco. Draco some people say is the golden
fleece, but was put to sleep with the potion given to Jason by
Medea. Others say that during the war between the gods and the
Titans, the goddess Minerva fought a dragon and hurled him into the sky,
where he got wrapped around the north celestial pole. In the
constellation Draco's tail can be hard to find simply because he snakes
around so much. His tail is between Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, and
his head near Lyra and Hercules. Draco is the radiant point for the
Draconid meteor showers.
Circum Polar Constellation situated between the Big Dipper and
Little Dipper, just Below the Celestial Pole.
