the Duck’s Foot, redux

To prepare for my hike with Dave in Yo, I took out my planisphere. Turns out the Duck’s Foot is part of Scorpio, with a couple stars that are unrelated.

The Ancients obviously made a colossal mistake in not incorporating those extra stars and calling the resultant thing “The Duck’s Foot.”

So much for spanglemaking this one.
