The sign of Gemini constellation represents the twins Castor and Polydeuces in Greek mythology. The brothers were also known as the Dioscuri, which means “sons of Zeus.” In most versions of the myth, however, only Polydeuces was Zeus’ son, and Castor was the son of the mortal King Tyndareus of Sparta. Gemini contains a Messier object – the star cluster Messier (M35, NGC 2168) – and has seven stars with known planets. The brightest star in the constellation is Pollux, Beta Geminorum, with an apparent magnitude of 1.14. There are two meteor showers associated with the constellation; the Geminids and the Rho Geminids.
