Deep Sky

aka Seven Sisters
Constellation: Taurus
Besides the great Orion Nebula, this open cluster needs no introduction.  It can be seen in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres.  It is one of the most beautiful clusters around, dominated by hot blue and extremely luminous stars.   Astronomers estimate that the cluster will survive another 250 million years and then disperse due to the gravitational interactions within the galactic neighborhood.
We hope to get all of the cluster this winter.

Time has marched on.
