Mythology
Apus, the bird of paradise, is a south circumpolar constellation. Its creation is credited to the sixteenth century navigators who sailed the southern seas and named the stars. The idea that this group of stars should be associated with a bird of some sort seems to be unanimous. One English astronomer, J. Ellard Gore referred to it as the House Swallow, while the Chinese called it the Curious Sparrow. Koreans saw it as the Little Wonder Bird.
