You can spot Lyra in the sky if you look for Vega, the shiniest star in the Lyra Constellation and the 5th shiniest in the whole sky.
It is said that Apollo, gave Orpheus the first lyre ever made. It was a perfect golden lyre. Orpheus, the greatest musician that ever lived charmed every living being with his music.
He fell in love with a nymph called Eurydice, and soon where to be married. After the wedding however, Eurydice passed away.
Orpheus, overcome by grief, travelled into the underworld, where he would try to soften the hearts of Hades and Persephone with his music, in order to get his nymph back. Hades and Persephone allowed him to take Eurydice back with one condition: Orpheus was only allowed to look at Eurydice, when upper world was reached.
They started their climb, with Orpheus on the front of Eurydice, so that he would not look at her. As they got closer to their destiny, he did not resist looking back at his spouse. Her soul was immediatly taken from him.
In his memory, Apollo took his lyre and put it in the sky, where it lies today by the name Lyra, the Harp.
