Seven Sisters: Pleiades
The Seven Sisters, also called the Pleiades or M45, is an open star cluster located about 400 light years away towards the constellation Taurus. It is about 13 light years across and is one of the brightest and closest star clusters to us.
The cluster contains over 3000 stars, most of which are considered middle aged. Surrounding the brighter stars are reflection nebulae, gas and dust reflecting the light from the stars. Also buried in the cluster are faint, low mass brown dwarf stars.

Just joined a sidewalk full of people outside taking a photo of this #rainbow #thunderstorm #dcstorms #dc
So yeah it’s been that kind of day. But We are about to have a great dinner and a great #thunderstorm so… Is about to become awesome.
One I my favorite #weather phenomena is the spontaneous rainbow. Realistically it’s just the way the sun shines through the water of the clouds but I prefer to believe it is from a cloud that is just too fabulous to be like the rest. #pride #rainbow #lgbt
Always reblog The Dude.
