Comparison: The Hydra Constellation

311 Words2 Pages
The Constellation I choose as my favorite is The Hydra Constellation. Hydra is my favorite because it is the biggest known modern constellation and it is commonly represented by one of my favorite reptiles the snake. Hydra is even one the longest known constellation at 100 degrees.Even though Hydra is so big it only contains one really bright star.

The Hydra Constellation has a few creation/myth stories. One story goes that a crow served Apollo a water snake in a cup after it was asked to fetch some water, But Apollo knew and could see through the deceit of the crow and furiously cast the snake, cup and crow to the sky. Hydra can also be associated with the monster of the same name with its copious amounts of heads, that Hercules slayed.
