I agree! In fact, I think I see a faint shadow of it off in the distance.

Default Messier 45, the Seven Sisters, in Taurus



Messier 45 (also known as the Pleiades), is an open star cluster containing middle-aged hot blue B-type stars located in the constellation of Taurus. It is among the nearest star clusters to Earth and is the cluster most obvious to the naked eye in the winter night sky. Wispy clouds of nebular dust reflect the light from the star clusters' most active members.

Note: Some of the 'sisters' are not shown in the image, because I could not get the entire cluster to fit on the image.

This astronomical object presents a challenge for astrophotographers because of the huge variation in brightness between the clusters' stars and the faint wispy reflection nebula. I hope to do an HDR (high dynamic range) image of this object this fall.

Image taken on November 9, 2010 at Taylorsville Lake, Kentucky
