Virgo is a zodiac as well as the second largest constellation. It is located in the southwest direction from Leo. Virgo lies near the western horizon. However, during summer, Virgo is not visible above the horizon. Since Virgo is only visible from September to October, it was known as the symbol of harvest in ancient times. Virgo is also said to be located on the south of Herdsman in the "Realm of the Nebulee", a part of the sky as called by Edwin Hubble. We can say that Virgo lies in a triangle whose three sides are Spica, Denebola (Leo) and Arcturus (Bootes). All of them together are members of the coma-Virgo cluster. These are hundreds of bright galaxies. In this cluster, Spica is the brightest star.
