Cassiopeia. The five bright stars form a W - or an M when the constellation is on the opposite side of the pole. In Greek mythology Cassiopeia was the vain queen who brought the wroth of Poseidon on the kingdom through her bragging. She almost lost her daughter Andromeda, but Perseus saved her. Poseidon put Cassiopeia in the sky on a chair to which she must cling for half the year when it's upside down. ©Mona Evans, "Cassiopeia the Queen" www.bellaonline.c...
