"Kirrbulen was the youngest daughter of Gidegal, The Moon Man. When Gidegal died his spirit went up into the sky. As he was going up, he told his four daughters to come and live up with him. That's why one of them always shines in the evening - Kirrbulen, The Evening Star, the large star in the east. The evening star in the south is Burldinku - Jupiter, the hunting star. The evening star in the southeast is Birrkuunku."
