Rarog by Marek Hapon

In Slavic mythology, the Raróg (Russian: Рарог) is a fire demon, often depicted as a fiery falcon.[1]

A caldera on Jupiter's moon Io was named Rarog Patera, a massive eruption[2] from which was recorded by the W. M. Keck Observatory and Japan's HISAKI (SPRINT-A) spacecraft on August 15, 2013.
