Amateur astronomers. Constellations of Taurus (the Bull) and Pleiades (the seven sisters) above silhouetted amateur astronomers and their telescope. Taurus runs from the two bright stars at centre left to the 'V' shape of bright stars at upper left. The 'V' shape represents the beginning of the horns of Taurus. Pleiades is centred on the cluster of seven bright stars at upper centre, though there are about twenty stars in the vicinity. The Pleiades stars are not actually close to each other and only appear to be so because they are on the same line of sight from Earth. Pleiades rises in the sky about an hour before Taurus does. Photographed in Arizona, USA.
