Caption: Draco is a very large constellation which has been associated with a dragon for centuries. In Greek mythology it is sometimes identified as the beast which guarded the golden apples in the garden of the Hesperides, and was killed by Hercules when he came to collect the apples as his eleventh labor. The stars of the Big Dipper (Ursa Major) are just below it.
