My father was an avid sky and telescope follower, His curiosity into space led to my education of the stars, Including his hook. To arouse my sense of awe, when he showed us the big dipper and the north star, he then told us one night that we had a constillation in the stars for our family there was the big "W". I later found out that it was Caseopia, by then I was hooked on stargazing.
