Pleiades star cluster, aka Seven Sisters

The Pleiades star cluster – also known as the Seven Sisters, or M45 – is visible from virtually every part of the globe. It looks like a tiny misty dipper of stars.

Northern Cross: Backbone of Milky Way

On summer evenings, look for this star pattern in the east, sideways to the horizon.
