Caption

Amateur astronomy, Orion and Hyades over trees. The stars of the constellation of Orion form the figure of a swordsman in the night sky. The belt consists of the three stars forming a line at upper left of the tree at lower right. Between the belt and the tree is the sword, which includes the Orion Nebula (M42), around 1500 light years away. The Hyades open star cluster (V-shaped, top centre, V pointing to right) is the nearest open star cluster to Earth. It is around 150 light years distant, and is in the constellation of Taurus. Photographed in the early morning on Ibiza, one of Spain's Balearic islands in the Mediterranean.
