Ara is a southern constellation in the Milky Way, south of scorpius. It was visualized by the ancient Greeks as the altar on which the gods of olympus swore an oath of allegiance before their battle with the Titans for control of the universe. The altar's top faces south, and the Milky Way can be imagined to be smoke rising from the incense.
