Seven Sisters - M 45
One of the most beautiful objects in the entire sky, the Pleiades are an open cluster, visible with the unaided eye. Photographs bring out the cirrus streaks of blue-white reflection nebulae around most of the stars of the cluster. The ancient Mesopotamians knew that the Pleiades were something special- they named it simply ‘The Constellation’ and it is the first star group in the official ancient Babylonian constellations (2000 B.C.)
