the Peacock

German astronomer Johann Bayer created this constellation in 1603. It can be found between the constellations of Telescopium, the telescope, and Octans, the octant. Although the constellation is modern, peacocks have mythological connections to ancient Greece. The peacock was the symbol for the goddess Hera, who placed the 100 eyes of the giant Argus into the tail of peacock to honor his service.
