Monoceros, a modern constellation, was created by Dutch astronomer Petrus Plancius in the seventeenth century. It represents the mythical unicorn, a single-horned animal, which appears several times in the Bible. This star group was introduced in 1612 on a star globe created by Plancius. He also invented the constellation Camelopardalis.
