Pegasus is a winged stallion horse derived from Greek mythology, a divine creature that brought forth springs from the Earth wherever it walked. Pegasus was also a servant to Zeus the King of Gods, obeying his every command.
There are several variations of how Pegasus was born, the most common version involves the Greek hero Perseus and his slaying of Medusa. As anyone who has seen the film “Jason and the Argonauts” will know Medusa was a monster with snakes for hair and whose gaze could turn a man to stone. Perseus was giving the task of slaying Medusa in her sea cave and did so successfully by using mirrors to avoid her stare. It is said that Medusa was the mother to Pegasus.
In the Northern Hemisphere, the constellation is high in the sky starting near the end of summer and continuing through autumn. If you are below the equator, look for Pegasus in late winter and through spring.
Our nearest star is our own sun, maybe you haven’t thought of that? When the light from the sun reaches us it has been on the road for eight minutes. So, when looking at the sun you’re looking eight minutes back in time.
