MythologyMetricsTargetsStar Names
Vulpecula, like its sly and elusive namesake, the Fox, is a small, dim and hard-to-locate constellation located directly south of Cygnus. The brightest star in Vulpecula is a rather dim 4.4 magnitude. Vulpecula was not recognized as a separate constellation by the Greeks or Romans and was introduced by Johannes Hevelius.
