Celestial globe showing Argo Navis Argo Navis (which means 'the ship Argus or Argo') is a Southern constellation created by the Ancient Greeks, who pictured it as the ship in which Jason with the Argonauts sailed in search of the Golden Fleece. Astronomers in the 18th century decided that it was too big to be just one constellation, so it was divided into 4 smaller ones: Puppis, (the Stern), Vela (the Sails), Pyxis (the Compass) Carina (the Keel). These names are still in use today.
