Constellation of Taurus

The constellation of Taurus is one of the 13 constellations of the zodiac through which the Sun passes every year. It is between the constellations of Gemini to its left and Aries to its right. The main stars that compose it are Aldebaran and Elnath. Two meteorite swarms are associated with it: the Southern Taurids and the Northern Taurids which are active from 25 September to 25 November.

In Greek mythology the constellation of Taurus represented the bovine form that Zeus adopted to kidnap Europa. Another legend tells how the constellation represents the white bull that Poseidon sent to Minos.
