I picked my user name because the constellation Cassiopeia is a constellation seen year round & is therefore well know. And, I love star gazing, etc.
this is FYI i have posted in my profile wall.
Cassiopeia (Greek Kassiope, Kassiepeia):
a constellation associated with the constellation family of Perseus, is at the edge of the Milky Way Galaxy. Queen of the celestial royal family, in Greek mythology she is wife of King Cepheus of Ethiopia, both are parents of Andromeda who married Perseus after he slew Medusa.
Known in ancient Japan as the Yamagata Star and Ikari Star. In Arabian countries: Caph.
Cassiopeia is circumpolar, it can be seen all year round from northern latitudes. After dark in Fall months, turn your back on the direction the sun went down and then shift a bit northward; you will be looking to the north-east. You will see there a group of five stars forming a Lazy M. This is Cassiopeia's Chair. You can see why it is called: Celestial M. As the night progresses, this northern constellation swings counterclockwise around Polaris and towards morning will become the Celestial W.
