Lady of the Night --- Illustration and poem by Don Blanding, c. 1935 --- This Night I see a luminescent trail Of powdered stardust, faint and pale, Across the sky, like moths in flight. A crescent moon of phantom white Is tangled in the filmy veil. My heart responds with quick delight, I greet the Lady of the Night.
URSA MAJOR, CONSTELLATION. CALLISTO - An Arcadian princess who was loved by the god Zeus and transformed into a bear by the wrathful goddess Artemis or Hera. She was later placed amongst the stars as the constellation Ursa Major, along with her son Arcas, who became Bootes. Hera was still furious and forbade Callisto's stars ever set into the river Oceanus. (Hyginus 2.1 & 2.4 from Hesiod, Amphis and others)
