There is an article in the October 2013 issue of Sky and Telescope on page 72. Maybe this is the article that you read.... Tony

You may not be finding it because of a spelling problem . It's "R_e_y, not "Ray."

Great article. I often wondered about the constellations that didn't at all resemble what they where supposed too (that would be most of them). The stick figures are bad enough but the full 'pictoral' images are really bad. Can't see why anyone would prefer them. I may have to go find his book.
