LFT side of Virgins Mantle: star formation in 1531....>

On the LEFT side of the Virgin's mantle one sees the northern constellations:

o At her shoulder, a fragment of the stars of the Herdman constellation; below it and to the left is the Great Bear. To its right is Berenice's Hair; below it Hunting Dogs; and to its left; the Thuban, which is the brightest star of the Draco constellation.
o Below the two parallel stars (which still form part of the Big Bear), one finds stars from another pair of constellation: the Auriga and at the bottom, three stars of Taurus.
o Thus, in their totality and proper places, the 46 most brilliant stars that can be seen on the horizon of the Valley of Mexico are identified.
