Andromeda's upper culmination occurs on the 23rd of September. This means that if the observer is facing south and looking high overhead at this time of year, the constellation will appear right-side up. However, as Andromeda is nearly circumpolar, it can be observed at a number of other times of year as well, with the observer facing north.

For the present we'll describe the constellation as seen facing north, from the Spring through Summer.

Prerequisite: Cassiopeia.
