The constellation Cygnus..

The Northern Cross in the middle..

Leda, also known as Jupiter XIII, is a prograde irregular satellite of Jupiter.. It was discovered by Charles T. Kowal at the Mount Palomar Observatory on September 14, 1974, after three nights' worth of photographic plates had been taken (September 11 through 13; Leda appears on all of them).. It was named after Leda, who was a lover of Zeus, the Greek equivalent of Jupiter (who came to her in the form of a swan)..Leda belongs to the Himalia group, 5 moons orbiting between 11 & 13 Gm from Jupiter at an inclination of about 27.5° - Discovery date July 6, 1938 - Lysithea is a prograde irregular satellite of Jupiter..Before 1975, it was simply known as Jupiter X..sometimes called Demeter the goddess of the harvest and agriculture, who presided over grains the fertility of the earth..Her emblem is the poppy, a bright red flower that grows among the barley..

This diagram compares the orbital elements and relative sizes of the members of the Himalia group..

The objects in the Himalia group have semi-major axes (distances from Jupiter) in the range of 11.15 and 11.75 Gm, inclinations between 26.6° and 28.3°, and eccentricities of between 0.11 and 0.25..It has been suggested that the group could be a remnant of the break-up of an asteroid from the main asteroid belt..Numerical integrations show a high probability of collisions among the members of the prograde group during the lifespan of the solar system..The Omega Nebula, also known as the Swan Nebula, Checkmark Nebula, and the Horseshoe Nebula ( Messier 17 or M17) is an H II region in the constellation Sagittarius..The Palomino crew discovers a black hole in space with a spaceship nearby, somehow defying the hole's massive gravitational pull..The ship is identified as the long-lost USS Cygnus, along with V.I.N.CENT and B.O.B..Project Monarch slaves who rebel are told that they will be “Turned into swans”..

Black Swan - Nightmarish Dance (13 September2010) HD Canada..

Leda and the swan and Leda and the egg were popular subjects in ancient art..Cygnus is a northern constellation lying on the plane of the Milky Way, deriving its name from the Latinized Greek word for swan..The constellation is also home to Cygnus X-1, a distant X-ray binary containing a supergiant and unseen massive companion that was the first object widely held to be a black hole..Many star systems in Cygnus have known planets as a result of the Kepler Mission observing one patch of the sky, the patch is the area around Cygnus..The North America Nebula (NGC 7000) is one of the most well-known nebulae in Cygnus, because it is visible to the unaided eye under dark skies, as a bright patch in the Milky Way..The Northern Coalsack Nebula, also called the Cygnus Rift, is a dark nebula located in the Cygnus Milky Way..According to traditional Chinese uranography, the modern constellation Cygnus is located within the northern quadrant of the sky, which is symbolized as the The Black Tortoise of the North... a large scale communal research compound where scientists and free thinkers from around the globe could pursue research in meteorology, psychology, parapsychology, zoology, electromagnetism, and Utopian social..What happened?..I don't think you'd like to know the details..I think I'd like to know..The alien's body recovered from...
