Caption

Pleiades. Optical image of the Pleiades star cluster (M45) in the constellation Taurus, the bull. North is at top. This is a cluster of young stars thought to be around 50 million years old. It lies some 400 light years from Earth. Faint blue nebulosity surrounds some of the stars, which is thought to be the remnants of the gas cloud from which they formed.
