Vulpecula is a small and faint northern constellation lying in the Milky Way at the head of Cygnus. It was introduced in the late 17th century by the Polish astronomer Johannes Hevelius under the name Vulpécula cum Anser, the Fox with Goose, which has since been simplified to just the Fox. Despite its obscurity, Vulpecula contains two unmissable, distinctively shaped objects for binocular users: the Dumbbell Nebula and Brocchi's Cluster (also known as the Coathanger).
