... where Hyperion comes from?

I hope you do not expect that this is a serious post because it is not... however, it is a post that I am really proud of...

So, where Hyperion comes from?



 
Mythology:

In Greek mythology, Hyperion ("The High-One") was the Titan of light and of the east.
 
He is the father of the lights of the parts of the day; Helios (the Sun), Eos (the Dawn), and Selene (the Moon). Theia is sister-wife of Hyperion.

Hyperion was one of the twelve Titan children of Gaia (Earth) and Uranus (Sky or Heaven) who, led by Cronus, overthrew Uranus and were themselves later overthrown by the Olympians. With his sister, the Titaness Theia, Hyperion fathered Helios (Sun), Selene (Moon) and Eos (Dawn).[1]

Science:

Of Hyperion we are told that he was the first to understand, by diligent attention and observation, the movement of both the sun and the moon and the other stars, and the seasons as well, in that they are caused by these bodies, and to make these facts known to others; and that for this reason he was called the father of these bodies, since he had begotten, so to speak, the speculation about them and their nature.
— Diodorus Siculus (5.67.1)
