By bragging on her beauty she enraged Poseidon and he punished her by making her spend eternity going thru the North Magnetic Pole in her chair, half the times having to hold on to keep from falling out. The Cassiopeia constellation is easily recognizable by it's distinct W shape formed by the 5 bright stars of Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta and Episolon Cassiopeiae.
