Night sky photograph of the constellation Perseus: Perseus rescued the princess Andromeda from Cetus by turning it to stone with Medusa's head.[8] He turned Polydectes and his followers to stone and appointed Dictys the fisherman king.[7] Perseus and Andromeda married and had six children.[8] In the sky, Perseus lies near the constellations Andromeda, Cepheus, Cassiopeia (Andromeda's mother), Cetus, and Pegasus.

From mid-northern latitudes, the constellation Perseus, the stars Capella and Aldebaran, and the Pleiades cluster light up the northeast sky in the wee hours after midnight on August nights.
