M45

NASA’s Astronomy photograph of the day (APOD) is a pretty sweet website, and some of the images are amazing. One such one is this image of M45, also known as the Pleiades or seven sisters.  As I wrote last years M45 is one of my top 10 things in the sky, it’s visible right now in the sky (look for the small group of stars that looks like a question mark) if you have a pair of binoculars get them out and watch the 6/7 stars become 1000’s
