Pegasus History

 

The Pegasus Constellation was named by Greek astronomer Ptolemy in the 2nd century after the mythological winged horse. 

The constellation is actually upside down. When flipped it makes the shape of the horse. The “Square of Pegasus” marks the constellation, the 4 stars that make it are all 10 degrees.  

Pegasus-300x225 Event

  • Pegasus leapt from the body of Gorgon Medusa after she was beheaded by Perseus. 
  • The hero Bellerophon tamed Pegasus, leading him to believe he could fly Pegasus to Olympus to join the gods. 
  • Zeus sent a horsefly to bite Pegasus, making Bellerophon lose control of the horse and fall back to Earth. 
  • Pegasus made the journey and stayed with Zeus transporting his thunder and lightning. 
  • Zeus eventually placed the horse among the stars.
