Cat’s Eye and Planet Ketu:
As per Vedic mythology, Rahu and Ketu were in one body. While churning the Milk Ocean, nectar pitcher was one of the prized possessions to come out. This led to a war between gods and demons, hence Lord Vishnu took the form of Mohini, the most attractive and charming woman, and started to distribute or feed nectar to both of them. However, demon Rahu noticed that it was Lord Vishnu in the garb of Mohini and He was not being honest in distribution of nectar. Therefore, Rahu sat among the gods in the garb of a divine god. Moon and Sun noticed him sitting with gods, and they informed Lord Vishnu. Rahu just gulped down little nectar, Lord Vishnu arrived and chopped his head off the neck with His divine Sudarshan Chakra but he could live as he had drunk the nectar already.
