Eltanin is the brightest star in Draco. One of the deep-sky objects in Draco is the Cat's Eye Nebula (NGC 6543), a planetary nebula that is said to look like a blue disc.
The ancient Egyptians identified Draco as 'Tawaret' the goddess of the northern sky. As the constellation never set she was shown to be a fierce protective goddess whose body consisted of crocodile, human, lioness, and hippopotamus parts.
