The Origin of the Name

The name is taken from Christopher M Linton's book "Eudoxus to Einstein: a history of mathematical astronomy."In medieval times, the part of the Moon's orbit south of the ecliptic was known as the 'dragon' (which devoured the Moon during eclipses) and from this we get the terminology 'dragon's head' for the ascending node and 'dragon's tail' for the descending node. The periods between successive nodes has, over time, been termed the draconic month, the words deriving from the Greek for 'dragon'
