The Circinus Galaxy (ESO 97-G13) is a Seyfert galaxy in the Circinus constellation - and one of the closest to the Milky Way (see also NGC 185). It is only 4 degrees below the Galactic plane, and 13 million light-yearsaway. The galaxy is undergoing tumultuous changes, as rings of gas are being ejected from the galaxy. The outermost ring is 700 light-years from the center of the galaxy and the inner ring is 130 light-years out. Although the Circinus galaxy can be seen using a small telescope, it was not noticed until 1977 because it lies close to the plane of the Milky Way and is obscured by galactic dust.
This would mean that Zeus and Alcmena are his biological parents, and Amphitryon and Alcmena are his parents on earth. Hercules was half god and half human in the myth.

The constellation I have chosen is Aquila. Aquila has 10 main stars, and 65 Flamsteed stars. It 's known for the being in the shape of an eagle, and the brightest star is Altair, which is two times more massive than the sun. Altair will only live 2 billion years, compared to the Sun 's 10 billion years. The reason I found this constellation interesting is because the Pioneer 11 spacecraft has been sent towards Lambda Aquilae, which is 125 light years away!
This one is the Greek creation myths. Long ago, the great god Zeus had changed the nymph Callisto into a bear to hide her from his wife Hera. However, everything has consequences.

Everything in the Protostellar Evolution is moving much more slowly. It reaches the name as an adult now.
