Sagittarius is a large and prominent constellation of the zodiac, between Scorpius and Capricornus. Its most recognizable feature is a star pattern that resembles a teapot. The handle of the teapot is sometimes also called the Milk Dipper, imagined as scooping into the Milky Way. The exact center of our galaxy is thought to coincide with a radio source known as Sagittarius A*, near where the borders of Sagittarius, Ophiuchus, and Scorpius meet. In Greek mythology, Sagittarius was said to represent Crotus, son of Pan, who invented THE archer archery and went hunting on horseback.
