The Musca constellation was created originally as the Bee, Apis, to feed the Chameleon constellation. It was later changed to Musca, the Fly, to avoid confusion with the Apus constellation.. A mythological connection could be made between the Musca constellation and the myth of the Titaness Metis. Metis had been Zeus's first wife, the mother of Athena, and had helped free her husband's siblings from their father, Kronos. However, after Zeus had assumed control of the world, he learned that if Metis bore him a son, that son would overthrow him the way Zeus had overthrown his own father. The king of the gods sought advice from his grandparents, Gaia and Uranus, who tell him he must destroy Metis. One day, alone together, Zeus lures Metis to him by talking to her sweetly. Once in his grasp, Zeus changes his wife into a fly and swallows her whole, averting the prophecy.
One Swatted Fly Later...Edit
