Geological record and reconstruction of the late Pliocene impact of the Eltanin
asteroid in the Southern Ocean.
It consists of stars of 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th magnitude: Gamma (y) Draconis (Eltanin
), Beta (P) Draconis (Rastaban), Xi (!;) Draconis (Grumium), and Nu (v) Draconis (Kuma).
While no one particular direction is required, astronomers suggest finding the "Draco the Dragon's" two brightest stars, which are Rastaban and Eltanin
, according to Time and date.
The Dragon's 2nd-magnitude nose, Gamma ([gamma]) Draconis (Eltanin
), is moving our way through space and will become the brightest star in Earth's sky several million years from now.
They say that because the Eltanin
meteor - which was up to two kilometres across - crashed into deep water, most scientists have not adequately considered either its potential for immediate catastrophic impacts on coastlines around the Pacific rim or its capacity to destabilise the entire planet's climate system.

Poychaetous annelids collected by the USNS Eltanin
and Staten Island cruises, chiefly from Antarctic seas.
In late 1959 the first four Australian women scientists went to Macquarie Island; two female French scientists went to the lies Kerguelen in 1961-2; a French engineer to Dumont D'Urville in 1962-3; and the first four American women scientists joined marine science voyages of the USNS Eltanin

The most recent data show, for example, that the Eltanin
fracture zone system in the South Pacific is much longer than previously thought, according to Marsh.
Pelagic shrimps of the Family Oplophoridae (Crustacea Decapoda) from the Pacific sector of the Southern Ocean: USNS Eltanin
Cruises 10, 11, 14-16, 19-21, 24 and 25.
Its four main stars are Eltanin
, Rastaban, Grumium, and Kuma, which are often called 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th magnitude, respectively.
