perseus3

Perseus was the first Greek superhero. He defeated the Gorgon, Medusa, by means of a mirror and sleight of hand, saved Andromeda from Cetus the sea monster, and founded Mycenae, one of the centers of Greek civilization.

Perseus’s fame is secured by his placement as a constellation in the summer sky (northern hemisphere). Dust particles from the comet Swift-Tuttle remind us of Perseus every summer (since 36 A.D. by Chinese records) with the Perseid meteor shower, which is due to peak today.
