Boötes is the Arctophylax

I’m currently reading a couple articles y’all might find interesting. First, a general overview of Boötes and its related constellations, and secondly E. Antonello’s suggestion that roughly 5,000 years ago Ursa Major and Minor appeared closer to Boötes than they presently do.

  1. Here I was wondering why a failed apprenticeship to a cobbler was coming up…not that it’s going to stop me mind. But this certainly makes more sense than that!


  2. So I found out something interesting to add to this… This month (Early December), there is a huge comet (Comet Leonard) that will be in the early morning skies just before sunrise…and it’s located near Arcturus at the bottom of Boötes.

    I wonder if it’s a sign.
