Zaniah, born September 1, 329 BC, fell from a triple star system in the constellation of Virgo.
Greek astronomer Timocharis was observing Venus when the Schaffas landed in his mud cake.
The impact pushed its legs through the soft boned body to reside at the top of its skull. It was
commonly mistaken for the horned star-dwelling Schaffas, Rhinis. Timocharis named the newly
horned creature Zaniah after the star from which it fell and its penchant for star-gazing. Inspiring
and befriending astronomers and astrologers throughout history, Zaniah has been coined the
'muse of the sky watchers' and is believed to hold the key to many secrets of the universe.
