MythologyMetricsTargetsStar Names
Phoenix is a constellation that lies between Eridanus and Grus, south of Sculptor. Phoenix is best view in the early evening during the autumn months. The Phoenix, also call the Firebird, is said to die in a blaze of fire and be reborn from the ashes of its previous life. The repetitive life of the Phoenix is often compared with the cyclical nature of the heavens.
