Constellation of Pegasus

Just next to the constellation of Andromeda, to which it is attached, the constellation of Pegasus forms a large square in the northern sky, easily recognisable because there are no bright stars around it.

In Greek mythology, Pegasus was a winged horse; after having borne the impetuous Bellerophon, Pegasus became Zeus's mount, king of the gods.

Do not miss the M 15 star cluster and Stephan's Quintet, a group of five galaxies.
