Constellation of Scorpio

The constellation of Scropio, from the Latin scoprius, is one of the 13 constellations of the zodiac that the Sun passes through every year. It is between the constellation of Sagittarius to its left and Libra to its right. One of the stars forming this constellation, also the main star, is Antares, recognisable by its red colour. There are two associated meteor showers in Scorpio: the Alpha scorpids, active from 6 May to 2 July and the Omega scorpids, active from 19 May to 11 July.

In Greek mythology, the scorpion sent Artemis to kill Orion. In another version it was Apollo who sent the scorpion to Orion through jealousy for the friendship he had with Artemis.
