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.

Cetus has also been identified as the Biblically famous whale who swallowed Jonah. Cetus is a rather large, yet faint constellation.
