45. Perseus

45. Perseus

This Northern Hemisphere constellation is called after the Greek legendary hero, Perseus, son of Jupiter, who rescued Andromeda, daughter of Cassiopeia, from the sea monster. Heis records 136 stars visible therein without telescopic aid. Its main stars are Mirfak, a navigational star, and Algol - a star which varies from second to fourth magnitude, then back to second in about seven hours, and remaining at its greatest lustre for nearly 3 days. Perseus is in the Milky Way, north of Taurus, south of Cassiopeia, east of Triangulum and west of Auriga.
