The Swan constellation, or the Northern Cross as it is also called, is one of the starry heaviest and most magnificent constellations. It is part of our own galaxy, the Milky Way, and consists of a number of very clear giant stars that with a little imagination can be shaped into a swan that dives with its head down. The constellation shows many extremely interesting astronomical oddities such as huge black holes, radioactive stars, quasars, nebulae but above all – stars that turn out to have so-called exoplanets, i.e. Earth-like planets orbiting around them.
The strongest star in the constellation is called Deneb and is a super gigantic celestial body about 1400 light-years from us, perhaps the brightest of all the stars in the night sky. According to Greek mythology, the Swan was a disguised Zeus, a god, a creature with both faults and merits, just like us humans.
Our nearest star is our own sun, maybe you do not think about that? When the light from the sun reaches us, it has been on its way for eight minutes. The speed of light is 300,000 km/second. We are “just” far away from life to exist on Tellus, our earth. But what if there are Earth-like planets in the constellation Swan? It will not be easy to get there for a check, the distance is really astronomical.
