"Lowe o'er the south the dread Antares crawls;
While northward from the heights Callisto falls.
Altair and Vega o'er the meadows glow,
And bright Arcturus swells the spangled glow,
And bright Arcturus swells the spangled show."
H.P. Lovecraft, A Rural Summer Eve

"Callisto, is sometimes called a daughter of Lycaon in Arcadia and sometimes of Nycteus or Ceteus. She was a huntress, and a companion of Artemis. Zeus, however, enjoyed her charms; and, in order that the deed might not become known to Hera, he metamorphosed her into a she-bear. But, notwithstanding this precaution, Callisto was slain by Artemis during the chase, through the contrivance of Hera."
Sir William Smith, Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology
