In the video clip, a narrator reportedly stated that when the day is done, the moon as well as her stars paint the sky along with brilliant constellations named from Greece mythology by old sailors navigating their path from one island to another.

But the organization has denied to remove or edit the footage that was taken by Alex Cherney, who is an Aussie photographer, in the year 2010, introducing that its use was justified as it showcased constellations which carry Greek names.

According to reports, they told a leading television channel that almost all the world, wherever you turn around your eyes, you would meet an idea, a name, which originated from Greece. Even the skies of Australia in the southern hemisphere, you would see stars and constellations which carry Greek names. The mythology of the sky at all latitudes and longitudes of the Earth is Greek.

Still, Mr Cherney was not impressed by the explanation. He told reportedly told that people do make mistakes but coming up with an explanation like that is funny. He added that this thing makes him laughing and smiling rather than being serious.
