Hello!

Cetus the "Sea Monster or Whale", another one of the water constellations, is said to be the sea monster sent by the sea god Poseidon to punish the vain boasts of Queen Cassiopeia. To save his kingdom from the monster, King Cepheus was to sacrifice his daughter, the Princess Andromeda.
Fortunately, the hero Perseus, happened to fly over, some say riding Pegasus the winged horse, took one look at Andromeda, and fell in love.
Perseus battled the sea monster Cetus and some say he was only able to slay it by using the head of Medusa to turn Cetus to stone.
