(The Cup)
   
           
A fairly insignificant constellation near Hydra, Crater doesn't really have any mythology behind it and its stars are quite faint and indistinguishable in an urban night sky.
           
           
NGC 3660:
NGC 3660 is an attractive ringed bar spiral similar to NGC 2523 in Camelopardalis. In similar fashion to NGC 2523, multiple spiral arms jut outwards from the ends of the ring. The ring and the spiral arms encircle a ferociously yellow bar with the core being the brightest part.
