Lore of the Constellations: Corona Borealis


In our last video, Jay Lamm, Planetarium Producer and Technical Manager at the Irene W. Pennington Planetarium in the Louisiana Art & Science Museum, will tell you a little bit about the crown in our sky: Corona Borealis, or, the Northern Crown.


Corona Borealis is a small but recognizable constellation that can be seen as a letter C or maybe a horseshoe.  The stars that create this configuration are said to be the jewels of the crown of Ariadne, daughter of King Minos, ruler of Crete.
