The Story of Perseus

Take a look at the story of how Perseus slew Medusa, the mother of Pegasus, and rescued Andromeda, the daughter of Cepheus and Cassiopeia, from the sea monster Cetus.

Although Cepheus is not a very bright constellation, it is located in a rather empty part of the sky near the North Pole, so it is not too difficult to find.
