• Legend has it that a young woman from a tribe in the Amazon was so infatuated by the Moon that she would chase it at night, climbing up hills in hopes of turning into a star and follow it into the skies.  One night however, the young woman saw the reflection of the moon in the river, and reached for it ultimately drowning.  The moon recognizing her sacrifice, transformed the young woman into a different type of star, the Vitória-Régia, the star of the waters.
