i need to know information for a science project. I need to know information of the constellations: Leo, Draco, Hercules, Bootes and Lyra.
The info i need to know is:
1) is it a circumpolar constellation
2) what is the best viewing time
3) name, language of name, origin of name, meaning of name, apparent magnitude, color, spectral class and distance of 5 major stars for each constellation
4) what items are found in or around each constellation, for ex. The milky way, ecliptic, nebulae, open star clusters.
5) interesting things visible with the naked eye for each constellation
6) other special features or interesting information related to the constellation
7) mythological backround

If you cannot give me all this information(which will probably be the case, lol) I would be glad if you could suggest some web sites where i could find it. Thank you very much for all you help.
