South Korea: Cassiopeia (카시오페이아)

Yesterday, I received my very first postcard from direct swapping. It was a card sent from South Korea, with the picture of Cassiopeia on the card. It was such a beautiful surprise because I do like constellation postcards a lot :)

Here’s Wikipedia's information on Cassiopeia:

“Cassiopeia is a constellation in the northern sky, named after the vain queen Cassiopeia in Greek mythology, who boasted about her unrivaled beauty. Cassiopeia was one of the 48 constellations listed by the 2nd-century Greek astronomer Ptolemy, and it remains one of the 88 modern constellations today. It is easily recognizable due to its distinctive 'M' shape when in upper culmination but in higher northern locations when near lower culminations in spring and summer it has a 'W' shape, formed by five bright stars.” - Wikipedia

And of course :) Beautiful Cassiopeia stamps that goes with the card.

Well, hope you liked this postcard J
