Girls Gone Wild In Taurus

Binoculars DSO Observing Outreach Visual Planet

Girls Gone Wild In Taurus

Every 8 years orbital resonance allows us to observe Venus pass through the fabulous open cluster Messier 45 (aka the Pleiades), the brightest of these stars commonly known as the Seven Sisters.
But what most astronomy books exclude is what a bad influence the promiscuous vixen Venus has on the prim and proper Pleiad ladies. April 2020’s slumber party started off innocently enough, with Venus pulling Ally’s Braid but soon devolved into pillow fights, jello shots, and trashing hotel rooms, along with smoking cigars and gambling til sunrise. As usual, poor papa Atlas ends up spending the next day bailing his daughters out of jail and nursing hangovers, as Venus happily prances along in search of others to partake in another night of hedonism.
Just some fractured mythology to keep in mind as we view M45 until 2028 and 2036, when visiting Venus again turns the stately cluster into a den of iniquities.
