#stargazingsaturday | Carina

CARINAconstellation is located in the southern sky. Its name means “the keel” (keel of a ship) in Latin. Carina used to be part of the much larger constellation Argo Navis, along with the constellations Puppis (the stern) and Vela (the sails).

Carina by itself is not associated with any myth in particular, but the larger constellation to which it used to belong – the Argo Navis – represented the ship on which Jason and the Argonauts sailed to Colchis (western part of present-day Georgia, on the Black Sea) to get the Golden Fleece.
