    Default Cassiopeia-CAM

    Thought this was interesting as I was looking up Cassiopeia on the web. There are two dim starlike features in this constellation, named M52 and M103 - sort of sounds like highways to me. Also, the poem states to throw out the two dimist, possibly relating to these two.

    Best of all, the constellation group immediately left of Casssiopeia is named "CAM", as in the authors first name....coincidence...?

    I found this a thought that is was interesting and possibly relevant.

    "As the night marches onward, Cassiopeia – like the hour hand of a clock – circles around the North Star, though in a counter-clockwise direction.

    By dawn, you will find Cassiopeia has swept down in the northwest – to a point below the North Star. At that time, if you’re at a southerly latitude, you might not be able to see Cassiopeia. The constellation might be below your horizon. But if you’re located at a latitude like those in the northern U.S., you will still see Cassiopeia sitting on or near your northern horizon."
