Caption: Pleiades star cluster (upper right, blue) with the planet Jupiter (brightest object, top right) and the California Nebula (NGC 1499, red, lower left). The Pleiades and the California Nebula are distant objects far beyond the solar system. Jupiter is much closer, shining by reflected light from the Sun. Jupiter also moves against the background of stars during the year as it orbits the Sun. It is the solar system's largest planet. The Pleiades is a cluster of young stars in the constellation of Taurus. The stars are about 100 million years old, seen behind blue reflection nebulae. NGC 1499 glows red as it is heated by nearby stars. It is a cloud of gas and dust from which stars may form.
