Correction: Nehushtan is Xi Serpentis, ξ Ser.

Earlier I incorrectly identified Nehushtan as v Ser.

    I believe the name comes from the Sky2000 catalog.  Here is what we say about it on the page about our star data:

    • SKY2000 Master Star Catalogs - NASA Flight Dynamics' Star Catalog Database. A complete and comprehensive catalog of the brightest 300,000 stars in the sky, to magnitude 9; it includes data from Hipparcos and Tycho, below, and is kept well-maintained and up to date by NASA. This is SkySafari and SkyGazer's basic source of stellar data.
