Poor beautiful princess Andromeda, she is going to be sacrificed to Cetus, a sea monster, in punishment for her mother's bragging. Just what did her mother, Queen Cassiopeia, do to bring this on? It seems that Andromeda needs a hero, but who will come to save her? Could it be the dashing Perseus? He is currently on a daring mission to defeat the awful Medusa. Just who is this Perseus? What is his backstory? Experience the mythological tale of Perseus, Andromeda, Cetus, Cepheus, and Cassiopeia in this delightful and fun-filled retelling of the Greek story that ties these constellations together.
A tour of the current night sky will follow the movie and will concentrate on how to locate these constellations in the fall sky as well as the current positions of the visible planets and other objects of interest for casual observers.
