The Constellation Perseus

Post by Christopher K. » February 6th, 2018, 2:34 pm

This constellation can be seen for the next two weeks about sixty degrees up in the west. The Pleiades Star Cluster will be to its south and the "W" of Cassiopeia will be to its north. Perseus was the hero who rescued Andromeda from a sea monster; Andromeda is below Perseus, setting earlier.
