photo by Bill and Sally Fletcher

- The stars of the night sky have been divided and mapped since ancient times. With this mapping the imaginative shapes and legends of the constellations were created.

This photo of Taurus shows, enlarged in their true color, the main "naked eye" stars that make up the shape of the constellation. The photograph also reveals deep space detail in this region of the sky including "The California Nebula" seen at the upper right of the photo and the well known blue star ckuster "The Pleiades".
