Constellation Bridge (sklÌ.)

The Bridge was named by early European explorers who sailed the southern oceans, along with the Elephant, the Flamingo, the Hummingbird, the Ivory Tower, the Jaguar, the Kangaroo, the Loom and Shuttle, the Seal, the Shark, and the Thimble.

It was burnt down by Phaethon when he lost control over the sun-chariot, before he fell into the River. The bridge was subsequently rebuilt in the heavens, near the southern end of the River.

The 52 naked-eye stars

In the ‘Our designation’ column, letters (sometimes with superscript numbers) in front of constellation symbols refer to Bayer’s catalogue or to variable star designations, and numbers to Flamsteed’s catalogue. Row colours roughly approximate the stars’ colours. The links lead to the stars’ entries in the SIMBAD Astronomical Database.
