Bob de Bruin Profile picture The Seven-Star Constellation (M45) or the Pleiades (officially so since 2005, and no longer spelled 'Pleiades') is an open cluster in the constellation of Taurus. The cluster is about 440 light-years from Earth. With the naked eye you can see 5 or 6 stars in an urban environment, but in a completely dark environment you can see 9 or 10 stars with sharp eyes; through binoculars or a telescope - depending on the strength - even tens or hundreds.
The Pleiades were already known in ancient times. They are mentioned around 750 BC in the Iliad and Odyssey of the Greek poet Homer. The poet Hesiodus also mentions the Pleiades in his works around 700 BC. Many other ancient civilizations also knew this cluster of stars. The Pleiades are mentioned as Kirnah[1] in the Bible: (Job 9:9), "He made the Great Bear, and Orion, the Pleiades, and the stars of the south." (Job 9:9), "Can you restrain the Pleiades, or loosen the chains of Orion?" (Job 38:31), "The maker of the Pleiades, and of Orion, his name is JHWH" (Amos 5:8). In Indian civilization they are invented as the saptamatrika, a series of images with the seven mother goddesses (hence the name "The Seven Sisters "). In ancient Egypt they were worshipped in the Isiscult and used as a reference in determining the beginning of spring.
